Authorities in Elko County say a man suspected of murdering his ex-wife at an Elko auto shop has committed suicide.

Elko Police Captain Will Lehmann told Channel 2 the alleged murder happened at the Smith Detroit Diesel on East Idaho Street Saturday around 2 p.m.

A mechanic for the shop reportedly heard loud noises, like doors being slammed.

Police say he then went to the front of the shop and found it was filled with smoke, along with his co-worker lying on the floor. He told police she was shot to death with a shotgun.

Captain Lehmann told Channel 2 Sunday that the person of interest, David Michael Heinzig reportedly drove to North Las Vegas, booked a hotel and committed suicide. A vehicle that matched the police description was also found outside the hotel.

Elko Police say with the death of Heinzig, they will close the case.
