    COLORADO SPRINGS — A man believed to be a white supremacist prison gang member arrested in connection with the shooting death of Colorado’s correctional chief was ordered held on $250,000 bond Monday.

    A magistrate set the bond for James Lohr, 47, of Colorado Springs, as he made his first court appearance since his arrest Friday.

    Lohr is one of two alleged members of the 211 Crew named as persons of interest in the case because of their contact with gang member Evan Ebel, the only suspect named so far in the killing of Tom Clements. The other, Thomas Guolee, remains at large.


    Authorities haven’t said whether talking to Lohr has helped their investigation into the killing of Clements. El Paso County sheriff’s office spokesman Lieutenant Jeff Kramer said Monday that investigators are still trying to determine whether other people were involved.

    Clements was shot as he answered his door March 19 in Monument, just north of Colorado Springs. Ebel, who died after a shootout in Texas, is also suspected in the death of pizza delivery man Nate Leon two days before. His body was found in the Denver suburb of Golden.
