(KCNC/CBS) – A gunman shot and killed Tom Clements, executive director of the
Colorado Department of Corrections, at his home late Tuesday night.
A suspect has not been
apprehended as of early Wednesday morning, according to multiple state and corrections sources.
Clements, 58, was
appointed to serve as the head of the DOC by Gov. John Hickenlooper in January
2011. He oversaw operations of state and private prisons and parole operations.
Clements came to Colorado from Missouri, where he worked for 31 years in the
Missouri Department of Corrections.
Eric Brown, a
spokesman for Hickenlooper, said DOC employees and other state employees were
being notified early Wednesday morning about the murder. Brown said
Hickenlooper would also likely make a public statement Wednesday.
"I can hardly
believe it, let alone write words to describe it," Hickenlooper said in an
email to Department of Corrections employees notifying them of the killing. "I
am so sad. I have never worked with a better person than Tom, and I can't
imagine our team without him."
The governor described
Clements as "unfailingly kind and thoughtful."
