Gang member arrested in Colo. corrections killing
White supremacist gang member arrested in connection with killing of Colorado's prisons chief
DENVER (AP) — An alleged white supremacist gang member who was arrested during the investigation into the killing of Colorado's prisons chiefs may have thrown a gun from his vehicle before his arrest.
James Lohr was arrested early Friday after a brief chase in Colorado Springs.
Investigators say surveillance video shows a firearm being thrown from Lohr's vehicle and two men finding the gun and later taking it. Authorities say the men aren't in trouble, but investigators want to retrieve the gun.
Authorities had said they were looking for Lohr and a fellow 211 Crew prison gang member as persons of interest in the slaying of Tom Clements.
Lohr was arrested on warrants unrelated to Clements' death.
The only named suspect is another 211 member who died after a shootout in Texas.
