Kenneth Walter Lilly walked in front of a school bus his vehicle had collided with on Interstate 35W Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 5, and repeatedly shot at the driver inside, authorities say. His gunfire grazed the side of the driver’s head and struck his left arm. The bus driver was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. His wounds were not considered life-threatening. An 8-year-old child also on the bus was not injured. That’s the account detailed in a criminal complaint filed against Lilly in Hennepin County District Court Thursday. 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 dangerous weapon. Law enforcement authorities responded to a report of a shooting on the interstate at Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis at 2:14 p.m. Tuesday. They arrived to find a school bus and black sedan parked in a lane of traffic, according to the charges.
