Minnesota School Bus Driver Shot In The Head During Snow Storm Traffic

Minnesota School Bus Driver Shot In The Head During Snow Storm Traffic”

The footage, which was made available to the public on Wednesday, was captured from a nearby traffic camera and outlines the incident from the moment of the shooting up until police arrive.

The violent ordeal unfolded after the alleged gunman, identified as 31-year-old Kenneth Lilly, drove his Toyota in front of a pickup truck and school bus before getting out of the auto and firing his gun, police said. An eight year old girl aboard the bus was not injured.

"We nearly start running out of ways to describe this".

The 31-year-old St. Paul man was charged with one count of attempted second-degree murder as well as a second count of second-degree assault with a risky weapon. "It is just horrific".

"We do not believe there was a self-defense claim based upon the evidence that we have received so far", said prosecutor Dave Brown.

Lilly was wearing a security guard's uniform at the time of the shooting.

Near the split with Interstate 94, Lilly stopped his auto in the lane of traffic, got out and walked towards the bus. Lilly appears to point a gun at the bus, and there what appear to be several gunshots.

The driver told Lilly he could not come in because there was a student on the bus. Suddenly, the suspect's vehicle pulls into the hard shoulder.

He then walked back to the front of the bus and fired five shots at the bus windshield, the complaint states. He told officers he shot the driver because he feared for his safety.

His gunfire grazed the side of the driver's head and struck his left arm.

According to the complaint, Lilly stopped his auto in the lane of traffic and walked toward the bus.

His first court appearance is on Friday and he faces 20 years in prison if convicted.

That's when Lilly pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic handgun and started walking toward the front of the bus, according to the criminal complaint.
