Arizona police shoot man suspected of driving into multiple cyclists

 At least ten people were seriously injured on Saturday (June 19) morning after a man driving a pickup truck plowed into cyclists at a bike race in Show Low, Arizona, before he was pursued and shot by police officers.

According to authorities, the suspect, who was driving a Ford F-150, hit multiple bicyclists at about 7:25 a.m. local time during a benefit state championship race known as the ‘Bike the Bluff’ event. The 35-year-old white male then tried to evade responding officers, who shot him a little over a mile away.

Police say one of the bicyclists was airlifted to a hospital in Phoenix and the others were taken to hospitals in the area with various critical injuries.

A spokesperson for the Show Low Police Department said the suspect was also in critical condition.

According to the event’s website, the race was started in 2008.
