MINOT, N.D. — A man accused of shooting two people outside a Minot bar last fall is scheduled to go to trial in January.

Steven Dolorenzo Steward is accused of attempted murder and reckless endangerment for a 2016 shooting outside the Sports on Tap bar.

Stewart is accused of shooting two men, ages 25 and 41, with a semi-automatic rifle in the parking lot. Authorities believe only one of the men was an intended target, and the other was a bystander. Both survived.

Stewart also is accused of firing into a crowd of people with an AK-47 rifle. Stewart fled following the shooting and was found in Las Vegas in March and returned to Minot. Court documents don’t list an attorney for him.
