TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-Magic Valley authorities are investigating a homicide in Gooding County and a shooting that injured one person in Jerome Wednesday night. According to Jerome Police Captain Duane Rubink, the suspect now identified as Josue Edgar Carrillo-Coronado was located in Buhl today after leading authorities on a short pursuit. Coronado was booked into the Jerome County Jail on a charge of attempted homicide for shooting a man at the Best Western Sawtooth Inn in Jerome. He is also connected to a homicide investigation in Gooding County. Capt. Rubink said officers were called out at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to the hotel for a report of a man that had been shot. The victim told investigators two hispanic men showed up to his room door and when he turned around he heard a bang and fell on the floor. Capt.

During the investigation detectives found a woman in the victims pickup and were able to get a name and possible location of the suspect in Buhl. During the investigation Gooding County Sheriff's deputies informed Jerome Police that they had found a man early this morning shot in the head with a small caliber weapon that may be connected to the same suspect.
