Six bicyclists were in critical condition Saturday after a pickup truck slammed into a road race in Show Low, Arizona. The driver fled the scene, and was later shot by police.

Show Low Police said four of the six were in critical condition and two were in critical but stable condition after the incident, including one who was airlifted from the scene. Two or three other victims walked into the hospital and are in stable condition, the department said on its Facebook page.

The driver of the black Super Duty Ford F150 pickup, who was chased down and shot after leaving the scene, was also in critical but stable condition, NBC affiliate KPNX reported. The suspect was not identified.

The Show Low Police Department, the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office and the Arizona Dept. of Public Safety are investigating. Show Low is about three hours northeast of Phoenix.

“Our community is shocked at this incident and our hearts and prayers are with the injured and their families at this time,” officials said in a statement.
