Police believe white supremacist may have murdered Tom Clements
Police are honing in on a killed white supremacist on parole as a key suspect in the shooting death of Colorado prisons’ official Tom Clements and a pizza delivery man.
Evan Ebel, a 28-year-old parolee living in Denver, was in a high-speed chase and shootout with police through Texas on Thursday. Mr. Ebel crashed and subsequently died at the hospital, various media reported.
The car chase started after police tried to pull Mr. Ebel over for suspected drug-dealing, CBS reports. As the deputy approached the car, Mr. Ebel reportedly started shooting and sped off. The deputy was shot, but was wearing a bullet proof vest and is recovering at the hospital.
Investigators identified Mr. Ebel as a member of “211s,” also known as Brotherhood of Aryan Alliance — a white supremacist gang that was founded in 1995 at Colorado Denver County Jail, CBS reports, Mr. Clements, 59, was executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections. He was gunned down on Tuesday evening, after he answered a knock on his door at home.
Texas law enforcement officials believe they have found evidence of Mr. Ebel’s involvement in that crime, The Associated Press reported.
Nathan Leon, 27, was shot and killed while delivering pizza last Sunday. Police are looking at Mr. Ebel as a suspect in that case, too.
