DENVER (AP) - State records show members of a white supremacist prison gang from Colorado have been moved to state and federal prisons around the country following the killing of the state’s former corrections chief by a paroled member.

The Denver Post used the records and interviews to confirm members of the 211 Crew were moved from Colorado. One gang leader, James Lohr, who is at a New Hampshire state prison, told the paper about other members who were moved.

The transfers included a gang founder who authorities say killed himself last month in a Wyoming prison.

Colorado corrections chief Rick Raemisch says the interstate agreement helps states keep staff and prisoners safe.

Evan Ebel killed Colorado’s then-prisons director Tom Clements in 2013 and later died in a shootout. No other suspects have been named in the slaying.
