Investigators question gang members

COLORADO SPRINGS - Investigators with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office are trying to determine how many people were involved in the murder of prison director Tom Clements. They have arrested two gang members with possible ties to suspected shooter Evan Ebel.

Thomas Guolee, 31, was arrested last night for a parole violation. James Lohr, 47, was taken into custody last week. Both are being held without bond at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.

Investigators believe both men were in contact with suspected Ebel in the days leading up to the Clements murder. Both are members of the same white supremacist prison gang as Ebel, the 211 Crew.

Investigators matched Ebel's gun with the Clements murder after Ebel was killed in a shootout with Texas police last month. They want to find out whether he had any help.

"Did Mr. Ebel act alone in some way and if he did not, if he had others involved, what role did each person play," explained Lt. Jeff Kramer, public information officer for the Sheriff's office.

Investigators are not naming any additional persons of interest at this time. However, they are always looking for credible information. They encourage anyone with information to call them at 390-5555.
