HERMISTON, Ore. (AP) — Two high school wrestling coaches are dead following a shooting and the body of a teenager who was last seen alive with one of them has also been found.

The East Oregonian reports Kenneth Valdez was killed at his home in Hermiston Thursday morning. Jason Huston, who volunteered alongside Valdez as a wrestling coach at Hermiston High School, was also found dead at the home from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

A 35-year-old woman, not yet identified by police, was also found shot at the scene and was taken to the hospital.

Police aren’t searching for other suspects.

Fourteen-year-old James “JJ” Hurtado was found dead in a remote area outside of the town Thursday night. He has been missing since Thursday morning, when police say Huston picked him up to play disc golf.
