Man Wanted In Death Of Colorado Prison Head Arrested

DENVER (April 5, 2013)--Authorities have arrested a member of a white supremacist gang linked to the murder of the head of Colorado's prison system, who was shot to death after answering the door of his home last month.

El Paso County sheriff's spokesman Jeff Kramer says James Lohr was taken into custody early Friday.

He was wanted for questioning in the murder of Colorado Corrections Director Tom Clements.

It's unclear if Lohr has been charged.

Authorities believe the Lohr was in contact with gang associate Evan Ebel days before the murders of Clements and pizza delivery man Nate Leon.

Police say they believe Ebel killed Leon and Clements before he was killed in a shootout in Texas.

The motive for the murders isn’t clear.

Lohr was arrested by Colorado Springs police following a short foot chase after officers tried to stop a car.
