The gunman gets out of his sedan and walks round to the bus driver before firing on a snowy highway in Minneapolis.

Cops arrested Lilly for second-degree assault, but he hasn't been formally charged, according to the Associated Press.

A Minnesota school bus driver was shot in the head while stopped in traffic during a snow storm Tuesday.

In a blurry video of the incident released by the Minnesota DOT, a man who is allegedly Lilly gets out of the auto and walks back toward the bus, which is halted in traffic on the highway.

Traffic cameras show Lilly, who appeared to be a uniformed security guard, pull his vehicle into a lane of traffic before getting out and making his way toward the bus. One final flash is seen as the man stands next to the bus door.

Police say 911 calls came in about the crash.

"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 statement Thursday.

Investigators say Lilly fired five rounds from a semi-automatic 9-millimeter pistol.

"The filing of the complaint tells you that we do not believe there was a self defence claim based on the evidence we have seen so far", Brown added.

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

The school bus driver, who wasn't identified, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was expected to survive. "It is just horrific", said chief deputy Hennepin County Attorney David Brown told reporters. Then, as the man walks between the pickup and the school bus, he apparently fires at least two more times. Lilly is set to appear in court on Friday, when prosecutors will request his bail to be set at $500,000.

However, the video footage showed the defendant had retreated to a safe spot before walking in front of the bus and shooting, according to the complaint.
