Having done extensive research into this very subject for work, I can quote
directly from the primary source,The FBI Uniform Crime Report for 1998 (most
recent available).

1989-1998 total law enforcement officers killed (includes federal agents)
Killed in traffic pursuits/stops:
93 (13.6%)
"Arrest situations" (has many sub-categories)Highest overall category
239 (35%)

Heres the reference:
