TAOS, N.M. (AP) — Taos police arrested the main suspect wanted in the shooting deaths of two teens.

Police announced early Friday that 18-year-old Jose Rivera was located in northeast Taos. Police responded to a residence and ordered everyone out of the home.

Two people exited the home and while police were watching them, a tactical team member saw Rivera hiding in a drainage pipe nearby.

Police arrested Rivera without incident and turned him over to the Taos County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities wanted Rivera for the shooting deaths of 19-year-old Chayne Aragon Dominguez of the El Prado area and 17-year-old Sefran Lujan of the Ranchos de Taos area.

The pair were found early Monday, inside a vehicle, dead from gunshot wounds.
