Colorado Springs, CO (KUSA) -- James Lohr, a known associate of a white supremacist prison gang and a person of interest in the homicide investigation of Colorado Department of Corrections Executive Director Tom Clements was taken into custody overnight by the Colorado Springs Police Department.

After his arrest 47-year-old Lohr was then transfered to the custody of the El Paso County Sheriff's Department, according to Lt. Jeff Kramer, a Public Information Officer for the El Paso County Sheriff's Department.

Kramer could not confirm any other details.

Several Colorado Springs media outlets say Lohr was taken into custody after Lohr fled from an attempted traffic stop in Colorado Springs.

Lohr and 31-year-old Thomas Goulee are believed to be part of the 211 Crew, the same gang whose members included Evan Ebel.

Ebel is the only suspect authorities have named in the death of Clements on March 19 and of Nathan Leon, a pizza deliveryman, two days earlier.
