Funeral services for a man and his son who were shot and killed in their home March 8 will be 10-11 a.m. Thursday at Christ's Church of the Valley, 7007 W. Happy Valley Rd. in Peoria.

In lieu of flowers, the family donations to Parish's Promise Scholarship. Donations can be made by contacting AGUILA Youth Leadership Institute at 602-518-0612 or by visiting www.aguilayouth.org, by mail or in person to AGUILA Youth Leadership Institute, 3030 N. 3rd St., Ste. 970, Phoenix, AZ 85012.
Two family members were also in the home at the time of the shooting but were not hurt, and the suspects fled without taking anything, according to Phoenix police.
The founder of the Aguila Youth Leadership Institute in Phoenix, Rosemary Ybarra-Hernandez, said she knew Parish Ocampo for six years. The institute is a college access program that supports the college planning process for young men and women.
Ybarra-Hernandez said he graduated from Arcadia High School, was paying his way through college and volunteered at the Aguila Youth Leadership Institute. He had just come to visit last week about starting his own scholarship fund, Ybarra-Hernandez said.
Yberra-Hernandez told CBS 5 News that Parish Ocampo was her first student to get his Social Security number through deferred action.
Phoenix police said they are looking for two men.
The first is black, 6'2" tall, 230 pounds, wearing a black short-sleeved T-shirt, jeans and a bandana over his face.
The second suspect is black, 6' tall, 200 pounds, wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, black pants and a ski mask covering his head.
Both suspects were carrying handguns.
