Charges say suspect fired 5 times at school bus windshield

April FrancisFeb 10, 2019

Prosecutors say the bus driver was trying to navigate the Interstate 35W-Interstate 94 interchange in poor weather when the bus apparently scraped Lilly's vehicle.

Following the shooting, Lilly, wearing what appears to be a security guard's uniform, gets on his cellphone and paces back and forth.

A 31-year-old Minnesotan has claimed that he acted in fear for his life after a CCTV camera caught him pulling over in front of a school bus and shooting its driver in the head in an apparent road rage incident in Minneapolis.

Lilly then walked to the driver's side of the bus where he pulled out his 9-millimeter semiautomatic pistol from its holster. The bus driver said he was unaware the vehicles had touched, but there was paint from the bus on the auto.

A child was at the back of the bus during the shooting, but was not injured.

Paul, was charged Thursday with attempted second-degree murder and second-degree assault.

Police say 911 calls came in about the crash. Lilly stopped his auto and tried to get on the bus but the driver refused, telling him there was a child on board. The bus driver was reportedly unaware he had hit anything.

"The actions of Mr. Lilly were outrageous and it was sheer luck that neither the bus driver nor the little girl were killed", Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a news release.

He is expected to make his first appearance on the charges in Hennepin County District Court Friday. Lilly apparently told troopers that he feared for his safety just before discharging the shots, a version of events which authorities quickly dismissed after reviewing footage. "Minneapolis police are continuing their investigation and if we can add aggravating circumstances for a longer sentence, should we prove him guilty, we will do so".

The bus driver suffered a shot to his head and was taken to a local hospital.
