Police in Texas arrested a white supremacist group member to question him in the murder of Colorado’s correction chief, Tom Clements.

CBS reported 47-year-old James Lohr was arrested overnight. On Friday, a Fox News anchor said he “did not go quietly. He was arrested after a foot chase in Colorado Springs after authorities pulled him over in a car.”

Mr. Lohr is a member of the 211 gang, El Paso County Sheriff’s Department officials told KKTV. Police are still seeking a second man — 32-year-old Thomas Guolee, who is also a member of the 211 gang.

Police think both men spoke with fellow gang member Evan Ebel, just days before the murder of Mr. Clements and a pizza delivery man, Nate Leon, CBS said. They aren’t calling them suspects but rather “persons of interest,” Fox News specified.
