St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith said two officers responded to a number of 911 calls of a man acting violently and "smashing a school bus."

When officers arrived on scene, Chief Smith said the suspect immediately confronted officers by throwing rocks at them.

Chief Smith said the suspect had a rock larger than a baseball.

"These callers were absolutely frantic," Chief Smith said. "You don't always have to have a firearm or a knife to hurt somebody. Our officers feared for their lives."
