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 (http://goo.gl/5Wpd1v) 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.
