I thought the commonly quoted "gun deaths" number included suicides too?

Following that definition the use of the term traffic homicide in a single car crash is incorrect, right?

Anyway, as it was explained to me, homicide was any unnatural death whether at the hands of another or not. Then it went into murder, manslaughter, vehicular homicide, ad nauseum. It was then explained that it was either criminal, noncriminal, or accidental. It must have been a statutory definition that got messed up in translation. Either that or it was an application definition for prosecution purposes. It was explained to me by an assistant state attorney, so it's probably the latter. Thanks.
