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.

Denver officer’s vehicle hit on I-25, suspect arrested

The officer was blocking traffic for an unrelated crash when his vehicle was hit, and he was taken to a hospital as a precaution, police said.

DENVER — A Denver Police Department (DPD) officer suffered minor injuries when a car hit his vehicle as he was blocking traffic for a crash early Sunday on Interstate 25, according to police.

The crash happened about 3:30 a.m. on I-25 southbound near the exit to 6th Avenue, according to DPD. The officer was in his vehicle blocking traffic for the unrelated crash when the suspect vehicle sideswiped his vehicle, a DPD spokesperson said.

The suspect vehicle continued south I-25 for a short distance before the driver pulled over, got out of the vehicle and ran, the spokesperson said.

The suspect was located in the area of South Kalamath Street and West Bayaud Avenue. Officers smelled alcohol on his breath, and his eyes were bloodshot and watery, and his speech was slurred, according to a probable cause (PC) statement in the case.

Firefight between armed homeowner and crook breaking into his vehicle ends badly for suspect

A Texas homeowner confronted a man he heard breaking into his vehicle just before 3 a.m. Tuesday, San Antonio police told the Express-News.

Many crooks still haven’t caught on to the very real possibility that their victims may be exercising their Second Amendment rights — and apparently this guy was no exception.

What happened next?

Indeed the homeowner told police he pulled out his gun, the paper said, adding that the man allegedly breaking into his car pulled out a gun, too.

The pair exchanged gunfire, the Express News reported, and the suspect was hit in the torso and fled the scene.

What happened to the suspect and the homeowner?

Police found the suspect’s body in the grass at Bellaire Park, the paper said, which is around the corner from the crime scene.

The homeowner wasn’t hit during the shootout, KTSA-AM reported, adding that it’s unclear if the homeowner will face criminal charges.
