TOPOCK, Ariz. (AP) – Authorities are investigating why a naked man jumped off a train in the Topock area and allegedly broke water pipes near an electrical box, causing a power outage at a home before he was shot.

Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say 25-year-old Joshua Daniel Reza of Needles, California was wounded in the face in Monday afternoon’s incident.

They say Reza was found stumbling on a road and covered in blood and was taken to a Nevada hospital for treatment.

Sheriff’s officials say a 72-year-old woman saw a naked man walking up to her home after her electricity went out and she screamed at him to leave.

Her 86-year-old boyfriend fired a shot at Reza after he allegedly ignored commands to get off the property.

County prosecutors now are reviewing the case.
