The driver had also been previously involved in a physical fight with one of the boy's relatives, the mother claimed.

A Durham police investigator then assessed surveillance images from the bus, which is said to be the driver & # 39; constant & # 39; text & # 39; t until the moment the boy is shot at.

Reportedly, the victim & # 39; seldom drives the bus home in the afternoon, causing the police to think the driver & # 39; helped coordinate the attack & # 39 ;.

The police have since appealed to a judge to gain access to suspect data to support his theory.

Investigators also say that he did not report the shooting and just drove away, despite the fact that he was holding his cell phone at the time.

The employee was fired the day after the shooting. He was a replacement director who worked with the school since 5 September last year.

"Our bus drivers as a group are committed to keeping students safe on the road and at bus stops. We do not accept behavior from a school bus driver who does not comply with this obligation, & said the Durham School District in a statement.

The letter of resignation of the suspect further states that he was fired because he did not report the shooting and that he observed his telephone while driving – a double violation of the system's policy.

The driver – who has not yet been publicly mentioned – has not been charged by investigators because they cannot "confirm that he was in any way involved in this incident."
