The factor that best predicts the race of a person fatally shot by police is the homicide rate of people of the same race, within a county.

For instance, in counties where whites committed a higher percentage of homicides, victims of police shootings are 3.5 times more likely to be white; in counties where blacks commit more homicides, victims are 3.7 times more likely to be black.
