Weapon Used:

85 - Asphyxiation

 

 

Summarize NIBRS weapon entries of 35 = Motor Vehicles, 95 = Unknown, and 99 = None as 90 = Other.

 

 

Note 1:  Of all the Summary weapon codes, three are not available in NIBRS—55-Pushed or thrown, 75-Drowning, and 80-Strangulation.

 

 

Note 2:  Although NIBRS allows for up to three types of weapons to be reported with an incident, the Supplementary Homicide Report allows for only one to be associated with a murder offense.  However, the issue of which weapon to report with the offense is automatically handled by choosing the weapon from the incident that appears first in the list above, thereby applying a weapon hierarchy.  For example, if a murder involves both personal weapons and explosives, convert the weapon as personal weapons because that weapon comes before explosives in the listing above.
