Texas shootout may be linked to Colorado slaying, police say
Molly Hennessy-Fiske and Jenny DeamHOUSTON — Authorities were investigating whether a man involved in a high-speed chase and shootout in north Texas on Thursday was linked to the killing of Colorado's prisons chief.
The man was driving a black Cadillac with Colorado plates — a vehicle similar to one seen outside the home of Tom Clements, executive director of Colorado's Department of Corrections, before Clements was shot to death Tuesday night.
Authorities did not release the suspected gunman's identity, but the Denver Post and the Associated Press reported that he was Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, a parolee and a member of a white supremacist prison gang. Ebel's convictions include robbery, menacing and assault, according to Colorado records.
