School Bus Shooting

School Bus Shooting

However. the Hennepin County Attorney's Office said the video showed Lilly had retreated to a safe spot before walking in front of the school bus and shooting at the driver.

CCTV video of the freaky incident shows Lilly, who is from the city of St. Paul, driving ahead of the bus in slow traffic on a snowy road.

He is expected to make his first appearance on the charges in Hennepin County District Court Friday. An 8-year-old girl on the bus was not injured.

After firing, the shooter called 911, according to the authorities. 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 bus driver told authorities that Lilly seemed to be trying to get on the bus, but the driver yelled that he couldn't let him on as there was a child on board, the complaint said.

Lilly's vehicle and the school bus had touched as the bus merged onto slow-moving traffic on the freeway, a criminal complaint seen by WCCO stated.

- A St. Paul, Minnesota man was charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a school bus driver after a crash on Interstate 35W in Minneapolis Tuesday. "The words to describe what went on here, we nearly run out of ways to describe this".

"You nearly run out of ways to describe what went on here, it's just horrific", Chief Deputy Hennepin County Attorney David Brown said. "It is just horrific".

The complaint said Lilly was in a security guard uniform when the shooting happened. Suddenly, the suspect's vehicle pulls into the hard shoulder.

Two of the bullets struck the 78-year-old male bus driver in the head and left arm. Lilly told police it was self defense. The man advances toward the bus again and fires off several more shots.

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.
