Man wanted for fatally shooting wife outside Cypress church found dead in hotel room bathroom



1/18/19
CYPRESS, Texas (KTRK) --
The man accused of fatally shooting his estranged wife and injuring his daughter outside a Cypress church has been found dead, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

SWAT officers surrounded an Extended Stay America hotel on West Sam Houston Parkway near Westheimer for hours. After negotiations ended, they entered a fourth-floor hotel room, where officers found 62-year-old Arthur Edigin dead in the bathroom.

Deputies arrived at the hotel on a tip that Edigin had checked in. They said he was considered armed and dangerous.

Some hotel guests were evacuated during the standoff. No one else was injured.

According to deputies, Edigin opened fire outside the Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church on Huffmeister just after 7 p.m. Thursday, killing his wife. His daughter was also shot but survived the shooting. A child who was in the car at the time was unhurt, sources say.

Sources with the Harris County Sheriff's Office tell us he threatened his wife before, with one incident happening as recently as January 6.
