The Minnesota Department of Transportation released chilling video of a school bus driver being shot in an apparent road rage incident. "The words to describe what went on here, we nearly run out of ways to describe this". The bus driver was reportedly unaware he had hit anything.
Cops arrested Lilly for second-degree assault, but he hasn't been formally charged, according to the Associated Press. A student who was sitting in the back of the bus at the time of the shooting was reunited with his family and did not suffer any injuries.
"We do not believe there was a self-defense claim based upon the evidence that we have received so far", said prosecutor Dave Brown.
According to the criminal complaint filed on Thursday, the school bus and the suspect's auto made contact on the freeway as the bus was merging onto the snowy road.
The shooter's employer said they've never had an incident with Lilly.
Near the split with Interstate 94, Lilly stopped his vehicle in the lane of traffic, got out and walked towards the bus.
Lilly, who was wearing his security guard uniform, pulled a handgun from his holster and fired at the bus windshield, wounding the driver's left arm and grazing his head.
After shooting, Lilly walked to the driver's side of the bus and called 911.
Video, released by the Minnesota Department of Transportation Wednesday, shows suspected gunman Kenneth Lilly pull over on the highway's shoulder, get out of his vehicle and walk toward the bus.
His first court appearance is on Friday and he faces 20 years in prison if convicted. Video showed Lilly walk towards the driver's side of the bus and pull out a 9 millimeter semiautomatic pistol.
Lilly apparently told troopers that he feared for his safety as he approached the doorway of the bus.
