"We understand that this is robbery motivated. Apparently two suspects," said Maj. Don Woodruff with Duluth Police.
Schrier's girlfriend and her 8-year-old daughter were also shot during the attack. They were taken to a hospital and later released. Schrier's 4-year-old daughter was also in the home but was not injured.
"Physically they expect to be okay but they're going to need a lot of prayers and support for all of the mental things they'll be going through because this is just the hardest thing," said Diane Happel, after her family wrapped her in support as she wept for her nephew.
Happel says now their tight-knit family is reeling from the tragedy and searching for answers and justice.
"If we ever find out exactly why they picked him, why that house? Why that neighborhood?" she asked. "I mean he was in a good neighborhood. It was safe and he felt safe there with his children."
They're also trying to figure out how they'll take care of Schrier's funeral and a lawyer for his case. They've set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for the expenses. Any leftover money will be given to Schrier's daughter.
"It's just horrible. He was a very, very good man, an awesome dad, wonderful son."
Schrier's funeral is set for Saturday afternoon at 4 in Duluth.
