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.

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

The sheriff's office is asking for the public's help in finding a man they say may be involved in the deadly shooting. They are looking for 18-year-old Jose Rivera.
