The Denver Post - - NEWS -

colorado springs» A man ques­tioned in the killing of Colorado’s pris­ons chief tried to break into the home of a for­mer cor­rec­tions em­ployee be­fore he got into a shootout with po­lice, au­thor­i­ties said Thurs­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors would not say whether last week’s in­ci­dent in­volv­ing Thomas Guolee, 34, was re­lated to shoot­ing death of Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions di­rec­tor Tom Cle­ments nearly three years ago.

A gunman killed Cle­ments when he an­swered his front door in March 2013. The only sus­pect was Evan Ebel, a mem­ber of a white su­prem­a­cist prison gang.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors in­ter­viewed Guolee and an­other man, mem­bers of Ebel’s gang, af­ter the slay­ing. The cor­rec­tions depart­ment said it alerted employees to the Dec. 30 break-in at­tempt.
