Will becoming a police officer make me shoot someone?

I want to be a police officer, and then go up to either become an FBI agent or a homicide detective (considering I pass all exams). I read I have to be a cop first before becoming a detective and have some type of experience to become an FBI agent. The thing is though, I really don't -and I mean at all- want to shoot someone, yet I don't want to be stuck in an office. I know circumstances change what one does, and I know I have to protect others and myself from dangers, yet I don't want to be caught up in it. If curcumstances are called for it, I could maybe shoot someone, but my biggest fear is killing someone even if it is for something like defending mysef or others. Does anyone in the law enforcement force been through this? If this is my fear, then should I change career? Will becoming an FBI agent make me do the same thing?

what does it take to become a crime-investigator and what are the other jobs that are like this?

? im a 15-year-old girl who always has, and I mean always been interested in crime documentation and investigations, but I don't know how I would start it honestly. I know I would never want to be a police officer because Im kind of scared of them based on the past and the salary, I know it would take time but what would I do even to start this? I would love to help people get closure and be an investigator but it seems to me that it's police work first I'm just so confused about how I feel about this. what do I need for college credits? where would I even go?

What degrees for becoming a police officer?

I want a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice degree and maybe even a Master of Criminal Justice degree. Should I go to a community college for my first two years of undergraduate education and then move to a 4-year college for my bachelor's/master's? Are the degrees even necessary? Also, since I'm going to start as a cop and then move up to homicide detective or maybe even as an FBI (special) agent, what classes should I take? What colleges are good for my degree? I really like writing, but my parents say a writer can't live off of books. So I guess it could be a hobby kind of thing. I'm also planning to take 4 years of study in French (of high school). What should I major in? Should I also minor in other studies and if so, which ones?
