A North Carolina bus driver is being credited with thwarting a potential school shooting.

Bus driver Alice Bradley was at South Macon Elementary School when she spotted a man with a gun walking around the school’s parking lot. When the suspect pointed his gun at her, Bradley drove her car at him, sending him running for cover.

Authorities arrested the male suspect, identified as 38-year-old Adam Conley, and his girlfriend, 29-year-old Kathryn Jeter.

Police say the couple had five pistols on them and told authorities that they had planned to kill students and teachers.

Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland said that the couple appeared to be on drugs and that they admitted to killing a cat on the school's campus.

Conley and Jeter were charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault with intent to kill, gun possession and animal cruelty.
