According to deputies, the 62-year-old man opened fire outside the Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church on Huffmeister just after 7 p.m. Thursday.
He reportedly fired multiple shots into the right side of a car, killing his estranged 66-year-old wife. His 31-year-old daughter was also shot but survived the shooting. A child who was in the car at the time was unhurt, sources say.
Authorities say Edigin fled the scene in a 2008 white Suburban with damage to the right quarter panel.
A tip led deputies to an Extended Stay America hotel on Sam Houston Parkway near Westheimer early Friday.
After negotiations ended, they entered a fourth-floor hotel room, where officers found Edigin dead in the bathroom. Deputies say he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
