MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors say a 31-year-old security guard fired five shots into the windshield of a school bus that had scraped his car on a snowy highway near downtown Minneapolis, wounding the driver but not striking a child who was on board.

Kenneth Lilly, of St. Paul, was charged Thursday with attempted second-degree murder and second-degree assault. Police say the bus was trying to merge Tuesday afternoon when it apparently scraped Lilly's sedan. The bus driver said he was unaware the vehicles had touched, but there was paint from the bus on the car. Lilly tried to get on the bus but the driver refused, telling him there was a child on board. Lilly then pulled a handgun from his holster and fired at the bus windshield, wounding the driver's left arm.
