DENVER (AP) - An alleged white supremacist gang member arrested during the investigation into the killing of Colorado's prisons chief will make his first court appearance Monday.

James Lohr was arrested early Friday after a brief chase in Colorado Springs. Authorities had announced they were looking for him and a fellow gang member as persons of interest in the slaying of Tom Clements.

The only named suspect in the case is another member of the 211 Crew prison gang who was killed in a shootout last month in Texas.

Lohr has a criminal record dating back to 1992 and was wanted on three separate warrants unrelated to the Clements investigation.

Authorities are investigating various motives in Clements' killing, including whether it was a hit ordered by the gang.
