WASHINGTON — Fifty six law enforcement officers were “feloniously killed” killed in 2010, including U.S. Border agent Brian Terry, up from 48 in 2009, according to preliminary statistics released Monday by the FBI.

Of the 56 felonious deaths:

  • 7 were killed during traffic pursuits/stops.
  • 6 were interrupting robberies in progress or were pursuing. robbery suspects.
  • 6 were responding to disturbance calls (four of them being domestic disturbances).
  • 3 interrupted burglaries in progress or were pursuing burglary suspects.
  • 3 died during tactical situations.
  • 2 were conducting investigations.
  • 1 was handling or transporting a prisoner.
  • 1 was killed during a drug-related conflict.
  • 4 were attempting to make arrests for other offenses.

Offenders used firearms in all but one of the felonious deaths of law enforcement officers in 2010, the FBI said.

Thirty-eight of the fallen officers were killed with handguns, 15 with rifles, and two with shotguns, the FBI said. The only officer who was not a victim of firearms was killed with a vehicle.

Among those killed in 2008 was U.S. Border agent Brian Terry, 40,  who was killed in Arizona last Dec. 14 while trying to apprehend a group of suspects.
