Authorities are looking for a man who escaped from a downtown Minneapolis courtroom Thursday after he was convicted of second-degree attempted murder. 25 year-old Michael David Henderson is African-American, five, 5-7, 154 lbs with short hair. He was last seen wearing a maroon t-shirt, dark-colored dress pants and black dress shoes. Henderson is considered dangerous and anyone who sees him should not approach and should call 911 immediately.

Minnesotans can begin early voting today for the November 4th general election. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says a new law allows voters to cast ballots 46 days before Election Day without an excuse. He says a voter can go to their city clerk or county elections office and vote absentee in-person. Ritchie says voters can also request an absentee ballot online and have it sent to their home. He expects in-person early voting will be popular with students and snowbirds who winter in places like Florida and Arizona.
