all been placed on routine administrative paid leave. residents on eva court called police because a man was walking around naked exposing himself. when police arrived, 53-year-old john bradley bowles took off on a pickup truck. the chase ended here in this parking lot. when police say he would not obey their commands, he appeared to brandish a weapon and an officer was fired. >> the item that appeared to be a weapon was, in fact, a cocking gun. >> reporter: three other officers also shot him as he revved up the engine of the pickup. the pickup had already struck several vehicles during the earlier pursuit. he's in critical condition at valley medical center. among charges he could face is assault with a deadly weapon. the officer involved shooting
