James Lohr

Colorado Springs police arrested a man this morning who they say is a gang member and “person of interest” in the case of slain Colorado Corrections chief Tom Clements. But as KRCC’s Liz Ruskin reports, he is being held on unrelated warrants, not as a homicide suspect.

47-year-old James Lohr was captured after a police chase near Memorial Park. Lohr now faces a new charge of eluding police. Lt. Jeff Kramer of the El Paso County Sheriff’s office says the names of Lohr and a fellow white supremacist came up as they investigated Clements’ shooting suspect Evan Ebel.

“All three of them are confirmed 211 crew members and we had information which indicated there was some contact between them and Mr. Ebel after Mr. Ebel’s release from DOC custody back in January.”

Kramer says authorities are still looking for 31-year-old Thomas Guolee who is wanted for questioning and on an unrelated warrant.
