Arizona police shoot suspect who struck multiple cyclists with vehicle

According to the Show Low Police Department, seven victims were taken to hospitals. Three cyclists are in critical condition at Flagstaff Medical Center, one is critical at University Medical Center of New Mexico, two others are in critical condition at Banner Medical Center in Phoenix and the seventh person is at Summit Healthcare in stable condition, according to an updated news release from police Sunday.

The suspect is also in stable condition, police said in a news release.

Police said all the cyclists involved were participating in the Master Men 55, 60, 65 and 70+ categories of the 13th Annual Bike the Bluff Arizona State Championship Road Race benefit event. The event is a 58-mile race to help the Mountain Christian School in Show Low, according to its website. It has multiple categories for both men and women based on age.

According to police, a suspect in a Ford F-150 hit bicyclists at about 7:25 a.m. local time during the event in Show Low, a city about 180 miles northeast of Phoenix.

The suspect fled the scene and was pursued by police, who engaged and shot the suspect behind a hardware store. Authorities have identified the suspect only as a 35-year-old White man.

“Our community is shocked at this incident and our hearts and prayers are with the injured and their families at this time,” Kristine M. Sleighter, a spokesperson for the Show Low Police Department said in the news release.

Multiple agencies have responded to investigate, including the Show Low Police Department, the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office and the Arizona Department of Public Safety, which will be responsible for the investigation related to the officer-involved shooting.

CNN has reached out to the race organizers for comment.

Vehicle strikes multiple protesters in Washington, 2 people sent to hospital

The unidentified 27-year-old suspect is in custody and faces multiple charges.

An overnight protest on a closed Washington state freeway ended with two women in the hospital after a motorist barreled into the crowd, according to Washington State Patrol.

For weeks, law enforcement authorities have warned pedestrian protesters not to use the highways as the setting for protests.

“The freeway is simply not a safe place…We feared something like this would happen,” said Captain Ron Mead, commander of Washington State Patrol field operations for District 2, at a press conference Saturday morning.

A 27-year-old man from Seattle is accused of driving his car onto the closed I-5, going around the vehicles that were supporting the protesters, and striking the pedestrians standing in the shoulder of the road, said Mead.

“We don’t know exactly where the vehicle came on, but we suspect he came on, on the wrong way of a ramp and entered the southbound lane of I-5, he did not come through on one of the closure lanes we had posted,” said Mead.

Interstate 5 between SR 520 and I-90 was closed multiple times in the last 24 hours due to protests.

A 32-year-old woman from Bellingham and a 24-year-old woman from Seattle were hit and taken to a nearby hospital.

The younger woman is in critical condition after suffering life-threatening injuries while the other victim is in stable condition.

The unidentified driver stopped the all-white sedan and was taken into custody for questioning. Mead said the driver passed a sobriety test and there’s no indication that the car was stolen.

“At the very least, he is looking at vehicle assault charges, felony hit-and-run, but those could be upgraded depending on the progress of the investigation,” said Mead, adding, “We don’t know if it’s a targeted attack, but that remains the focus of our investigation.”

Mead said police have made efforts to keep
