HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The man wanted in connection with killing two women in an Upper Kirby apartment last week was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Police in Lytle, Texas, on Monday found the body of Arian Hojat, 34, inside a motel room there. Lytle is southwest of San Antonio and is approximately 215 miles from Houston.

Hojat is believed to have shot Nasim Arab, 34, and Sousan Arab, 32, inside the apartment in the 3200 block of Norfolk Street on Friday, according to Houston police. Witnesses told investigators they saw someone leaving the scene in a black BMW with New Jersey license plates.

That BMW was also found at the motel in Lytle, which is southwest of San Antonio.
