A man injured in a double shooting outside a Superior bar Sunday is continuing to recover in a Duluth hospital as police have yet to announce any arrests in the incident that left his brother dead. David Androsky, 27, was hospitalized at Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center after being shot in the chest during the altercation behind the Third Base Bar on New Year's Day. His brother, 21-year-old Kyle Androsky, was killed in the altercation. Police said a dispute inside the bar preceded the shooting.
The trial for the suspect in a fatal North Shore shooting has been rescheduled for June. Kirk Lee Bigby, 62, of Finland, faces intentional and unintentional second-degree murder charges in the December 2015 killing of Marcus Lee Roberts outside the Bluefin Bay resort in Tofte. Bigby had been set for trial for next week, but a judge last month agreed to postpone the case to allow the defendant to discharge his public defender and hire private counsel.
The victims of a New Year's Day shooting in Superior have been identified.

A second victim, 27-year-old David Androsky, was shot in the chest and taken to Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth, where he was listed in stable condition on Monday. No arrests have been announced in the case, but police said they were not treating it as a random act.
