WASHINGTON -- FBI Director James Comey says his organization will have a database to track deadly force by police up and running within the next two years.

The database will track when and why dead force is used.

Comey said a lack of information has led to uninformed discussions about interactions between police and citizens.

There are a few websites tracking incidents, but their information comes from a mix of social media and news reports and often lacks important details.
