$2 million bond set for man accused of opening fire, killing one, in Chisholm bar

HIBBING, Minn. (AP) - Bond was set at $2 million Thursday for a man accused of killing one man and injuring two others in a bar in northeastern Minnesota.

Forty-seven-year-old Jason Musburger of Chisholm faces six charges, including second-degree murder in the death of Edward John Walberg.

Musburger is accused in the shooting at Jim's Sports Club Bar and Grill in Chisholm Saturday.

He's also charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting and wounding Cale Steve Nelson, who's in serious condition in Duluth, and Larry Vernon Elj, who was shot in the shoulder area.

And, he faces counts of stalking and violating a restraining order.

The men were seated at a table with Musburger's ex-wife.

Another court date was scheduled for March 19.
