TAOS, N.M. (AP) — Two northern New Mexico teenagers are dead, found shot in the head before dawn Monday in a vehicle that still had its headlights on.

Taos County Undersheriff Edwardo Romero identifies them as 19-year-old Chayne Aragon Dominguez of the El Prado area and 17-year-old Sefran Lujan of the Ranchos de Taos area.

Romero says a deputy heading home about 4 a.m. Monday spotted the car on a Carson National Forest road off N.M. 518.

He found the bodies slouched in the front seat with blood on their heads.

Romero says his office is in the process of getting a search warrant for a suspect from Taos County. He would not release the name.

He says the teens were shot between midnight and 4 a.m. Monday when the deputy found them.
