WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A judge in Wausau set bond at $1 million Monday for a man charged with shooting and wounding an aunt and uncle.  

Prosecutors said 21-year-old Kyle Schaefer was leaving a basement when he opened the door and began firing without warning. Three bullets struck Patrick and Sandra Schmitt, who were still at a Wausau hospital at last word. Patrick was in serious but stable condition, and Sandra was listed as good.  

The shootings occurred Saturday night at a home in the Marathon County town of Maine, northeast of Wausau.  

Prosecutors say they're not sure about a possible motive. A criminal complaint said Schaefer was grieving the loss of his grandmother to cancer, and had lost a job after having it less than three days.  

He's charged with two counts of attempted homicide, and three charges of reckless endangerment.

Schaefer is due back in court a week from Wednesday, when a judge will decide if there's enough evidence to order a trial.
