Dangerous Violent Criminal on the Run in the Capital Region
More courtroom drama in Albany today and this time, much more dangerous than releasing hundreds of cockroaches.
The Albany County DA's office says 36 year old Michael Green, aka Michael Edwards was convicted Friday second degree attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon, both are considered violent felonies. Green was in the courthouse Friday, but took off before the verdict could be read.
Because Green ran away, no sentence was handed down, but he is said to be facing 25 years in prison.
In 2020 Green was involved in a drive by shooting on Old Loudon Road in Colonie where he fired several shots at a house in April of 2020. CBS 6 reports several people were in the home at the time including a 2 year old and 6 year old.
His whereabouts are unknown, but a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest. If you see him, contact police immediately. As always, anonymous tips can be submitted at capitalregioncrimestoppers.com.
