Shawn Michael Chock ID'd as driver that rammed bicyclists

Arizona police on Monday released the identity of the man they say plowed through bicyclists during a race, critically injuring six.

Shawn Michael Chock, 35, was still hospitalized after he was shot during a confrontation with police after the carnage in Show Low on Saturday, police announced.

Seven bicyclists also remained hospitalized, six of them in critical condition, according to the Show Low Police Department on Monday.

Chock, of White Mountain Lakes, is said to have driven his Ford into a throng of cyclists who’d just begun in the 55-and-over group of the annual Bike the Bluff road race.

Racer Jim Volkenant told ABC 15 that he had locked eyes with the driver.

“It was a look I will never forget,” Volenant said. “Staring like there was nothing there.”

Police caught up with Chock after he sped away from the scene and opened fire, striking Chock.

Six of the injured racers had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance and several additional victims were also treated as walk-ins, according to the department.

No charges have been filed against Chock while he’s hospitalized.

Someone with Chock’s name and age has been arrested before — with charges of DUI and aggravated assault as well as time spent behind bars for a probation violation.
