Colo. Corrections Chief Killed

Tom Clements, the executive director of Colorado’s department of corrections was shot to death Tuesday night reportedly when answering a doorbell ring at his house, police said. A spokesman for the sheriff's department said it does not appear that robbery was the motive, and that they are investigating if it had any link to Clements's job. No one else in the house was injured. “I can hardly believe it, let alone write words to describe it,” wrote Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper in a statement. The shooting happened just hours before Hickenlooper signed legislation that will tighten ammunition limits and expand background checks. Clements's family described him as a “good, family man” and said he was “against the death penalty.”
