CARJACKING SHOOTING -- Police shot and killed a carjacking suspect in east-central Minnesota's Chisago County. Happened outside the town of Harris this morning. Police say the suspect had his 7-year-old daughter with him when the car was taken. She's safe. No names released yet.
TORNADOES -- The National Weather Service says severe storms spun-out a couple of tornadoes in south-central Minnesota last night -- but there are no reports of injuries or major damage. Both twisters around Lake Crystal.
MISSISSIPPI DRAWDOWN -- St. Cloud's drawing-down water levels on the Mississippi this week by two feet. That's upstream of the 10th Street hydro plant and dam.
MEASLES OUTBREAK -- Minnesota health officials may declare the measles outbreak over if they don't see any new cases by the end of the month. The number of measles cases remains at nearly 80.
35W BRIDGE COLLAPSE EXHIBIT -- Ten years ago, gusset plates on the 35-W bridge in Minneapolis failed and the bridge collapsed into the Mississippi. 13 people died, 145 were hurt. Now, the Minnesota Historical Society is commemorating that event, putting one of the gusset plates on display at the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis. And the emergency door of a school bus that was on the bridge goes on display at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul.
