Man Named Suspect in Colorado Shooting

DENVER, Colo_Investigators are saying for the first time that a man who was killed in a gunfight with Texas authorities is a suspect in the shooting death of Colorado's State Prison System Chief.


El Paso County Sheriff's spokesman Lieutenant Jeff Kramer said Saturday that evidence gathered in Texas after the death of Evan Ebel provides a "strong, strong lead'' in the murder of Tom Clements, Director of the Colorado Department of Corrections.

But although they are saying Ebel is a suspect, Kramer stressed that investigators have not yet confirmed a link between Ebel and Clements' death.

Clements was shot Tuesday night when he answered the door of his home in a rural area north of Colorado Springs.

Ebel, who was paroled from a Colorado prison in January, was fatally shot by authorities in Texas Thursday.
