Authorities pursued him until they reached a hardware store, where an officer shot the driver behind the building, police said.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety will be in charge of investigating the shooting, according to Show Low police.
Six cyclists were taken to a hospital by medical district personnel. Four were in critical condition, and two were “critical but stable,” police said.
