The executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections was shot and killed Tuesday night as he answered the door at his home in a rural, wooded area, authorities said.

El Paso County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Kramer said Tom Clements was shot in the chest around 8:30 p.m. by an unknown assailant at his home in an upscale section of Monument, Colo., just north of Colorado Springs.

Kramer said a family member who was home at the time called 911, but declined to indicate whether the family member witnessed the shooting.

Search dogs were called in to comb through a wooded area around Clements’ home, which is tucked out of sight at the end of a long, winding driveway, and authorities were going house to house trying to find out what neighbors heard.

  • In a Society of Violence and de regulation, there seems to be no justice, even for those who believe they are above justice themselves. i dont condone killing or advocate it, these types do alot of killing themselves, people just dont know about it. everything happens for a reason. not sure why this happened and someone knows something. probably political.
