    According to the URL:

    111 died nationwide

    43 in traffic wrecks
    33 by firearms
    14 by heart attack (they were counted "in the line of duty?!)
    the other 21 weren't accounted for

    No mention of how many citizens were wrongly shot by police officers. I found a total of 300 killed by LEOs on Wikipedia: List of killings by law enforcement officers in the United States, 2013 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia but it doesn't differentiate between justified and non-justified.

    The information provided does not list the number of officers shot. A large part of the reduction in deaths may be attributed to survival due to advances in trauma care as well.
