Barrett was one of seven cyclists hurt June 19 in Show Low, which is about three hours northeast of Phoenix.

Authorities said Shawn Michael Chock, 36, drove into the bikers, fled the scene and was later shot by a Show Low police officer.

The 36-year-old Chock was indicted last week on nine counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of fleeing an accident and unlawful flight.

Navajo County Attorney Brad Carlyon told AZ Family he is expecting more charges to be filed in the wake of the man’s death.

“Once we have received all the law enforcement reports, we will receive to determine if any new charges are appropriate to bring,” Carlyon said.
