Memorial service planned for slain prisons chief

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A public memorial service is planned Monday for the director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, who was fatally shot when he answered his front door.

The service for 58-year-old Tom Clements is set for New Life Church in Colorado Springs. A private funeral was held for him Sunday.

Colorado's top prisons official was killed at his home Tuesday night in Monument, north of Colorado Springs. He is survived by a wife and two daughters.

Evan Spencer Ebel, killed in a gunfight with Texas authorities Thursday, is a suspect and had been a member of the 211s, a white supremacist prison gang in Colorado. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says the results of ballistics tests are expected this week.
