The shooting death of the Colorado prison chief investigation continues today as law enforcement looks for the person who shot Tom Clements when he answered the front door at his home. Authorities are looking for a possible witness as neighbors say they saw a woman speed-walking in the neighborhood about the time that Clements was shot, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Thursday, March 21, 2013.
Neighbors also saw a car idling in the area at the same time that Clements was killed, but according to NBC News on Wednesday, authorities only have a vague description of that vehicle. It was described as a dark colored boxy, two-door car that was unoccupied but idling at the intersection only about 200 yards away from Clements' home.
Another person saw the vehicle after the shooting with one person in the car, but they couldn't give a description of that person. The trouble with this case is that in Clements position in the prison, there could be a number of people that would want him dead. The prison deals with a hard-core element.
The woman who was seen speed-walking in the neighborhood around the time of the shooting is not a person of interest, just a potential witness. She wore a dark windbreaker and light pants and possibly had a hat on, according to NOLA today.
While Clements' home is in a rural area, police are now looking at surveillance cameras from stores in the town in hopes of catching a license plate on a car that fits the description of the one seen idling in the area of Clements' home.
Because of this shooting, security was stepped upped for Governor John Hickenlooper and other state officials, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Thursday. NOLA reports today that the authorities do not know if Clemens was a target or if this was a random shooting.
