“We’re not sure exactly what happened inside the home, but we know he was forced back inside the home. At some point, he was shot,” county police Inspector Andrew Schurman said.

“That’s something we’re trying to determine more definitively — what the motive was, and why he was selected,” Schurman said. “At this point, we have no reason to think he was randomly selected. There was something in his life that caused these men to show up and ransack his home.”
