CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Authorities have positively identified the victim of a murder in Chambersburg.

Victor Hugo Campos-Olguin, 29, died of a single gunshot wound to the neck Monday night in his home at 310 East King Street, according to the Franklin County Coroner's Office.

Police have charged tow suspects, 38-year-old Jason C. Shauf and 54-year-old Karl Varner, both of Chambersburg, with first- and second-degree murder, robbery, burglary, and criminal conspiracy.

Investigators said Shauf and Varner went into the home armed with guns and demanded to see "El Gallo," then forced six people in the home to the second floor while demanding money and other property.

Shauf fired a gunshot into a bedroom ceiling during the incident, and Varner shot and killed Campos-Olguin in the bathroom, according to police.

Both suspects are being held in the Franklin County Prison without bail.
