Officials in Colorado are on the lookout for two purported associates of a white supremacist prison gang whose names surfaced during the investigation into the killing of the state's prisons director.
James Franklin Lohr, 47, and Thomas James Guolee, 31, are not suspects in the doorstep killing of prisons director Tom Clements, El Paso County spokesman Jeff Kramer told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday night.
Lohr and Guolee are wanted on warrants unrelated to the Clements slaying, he said.
Officials consider the pair "armed and dangerous" and possibly on their way to Texas or Nevada.
Kramer said Lohr and Guolee are "associates" of the 211 Crew, a Colorado-based white supremacist prison gang to which Clements slaying suspect Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, reportedly belonged.
The weapon Ebel used in a fatal shootout with deputies in Wise County, Texas, was matched with the weapon that killed Clements at his home near Colorado Springs on March 19.
