Law enforcement authorities identified the man accused of plowing his pickup truck into a group of American amateur cyclists participating in the Arizona State Road Championships as a 35 year-old Arizona resident .
Shawn Michael Chock of White Mountain Lakes, fled the scene of the mass casualty incident on 19 June in Show Low after critically injuring seven cyclists before being shot twice by police. Chock remains hospitalized in stable condition and has not yet been charged with a crime.
He is accused of intentionally plowing his Ford F-150 truck into a pack of cyclists multiple times at the 93-kilometer Bike the Bluff race. Witnesses described seeing the bodies of cyclists flying left and right.
The seven cyclists who were hit and hospitalized, remain hospitalized a week after the terrifying incident.
Six of those cyclists are being treated in the State of Arizona. One that was air lifted to Banner Medical Center-Phoenix underwent emergency surgery and doctors expect he will need more surgeries.
The seventh cyclist, being treated at University Medical Center in New Mexico underwent his first surgery this week.
Maricopa County Court records list a criminal history dating back to 2010 for a defendant with the name Shawn Michael Chock with the same age and address as the accused.
In 2007, Chock was indicted on aggravated assault but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct with a weapon.
In 2010, he pleaded guilty to Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and served 17 months in prison according to the Arizona Department of Corrections records.
This year has been especially dangerous for Arizona cyclists, last month police arrested a tow truck driver for hitting six riders in Flagstaff, killing one woman and hospitalizing four.
