Authorities investigating the death of Colorado's prisons chief are telling law enforcement officers to watch out for two men associated with a white supremacist prison gang.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said deputies are seeking 47-year-old James Lohr and 31-year-old Thomas Guolee in connection with the death of Tom Clements.
Lt. Jeff Kramer says they aren't suspects, but their names surfaced during the investigation and they are "persons of interest."
Kramer also confirmed that the El Paso County Sheriff's Office has been apprehending other 211 gang members and known associates of Evan Ebel for questioning. Investigators have been questioning these people for information regarding the murder of Tom Clements and Ebel's other actions.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said the two men have associated with Evan Ebel in the past and are also part of the 211 Crew.
Ebel is the man accused of gunning down Tom Clements at his home outside Monument two weeks ago and a pizza delivery driver two days earlier.
Ebel was killed in a shootout with Texas deputies a few days after that.
James Franklin Lohr is described as a 47-year-old man who is 6' tall, 160 pounds, with blond hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos. The EPCSO said that Lohr has misdemeanor warrants for his arrest, but they are not related to the Tom Clement's murder investigation.
Thomas James Guolee is described as a 31-year-old male who is 5' 9" tall, 160 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He also has several tattoos. Guolee also has an unrelated felony warrant for his arrest.
Both men have a lengthy criminal pasts are considered armed and dangerous.
Law enforcement in Kansas was also put on alert Wednesday to watch out for these men. They could possibly be headed to Nevada or Texas, but aren't necessarily together.
