White supremacist gang member pleads guilty

KUSA - A white supremacist prison gang member, once suspected in the murder of Department of Corrections head Tom Clements, pleaded guilty Thursday to attempted murder of a peace officer.

Thomas Guolee agreed to a 28-year sentence after shooting at Colorado Springs Police officers on Dec. 30, 2015. 

Guolee was a reported associate of Clements' murderer, 211 Crew member Evan Ebel.  Internal emails obtained by 9Wants To Know showed DOC leadership considered him a suspect in Clements murder as recently as January.

Ebel shot and killed Clements in 2013, and later died in a shootout with law enforcement in Texas.

When news of Guolee's shooting in December broke, it appeared Guolee may have been targeting DOC employees.  9Wants to Know learned Guolee stole a DOC employee's car a week before the shooting, and then attempted to break into the home of a different DOC officer who had already left the agency.

When CSPD officers arrived on scene, Guolee shot at them at least twice, and led them on a chase through the city before crashing his vehicle.

Guolee has a long criminal history, including multiple parole violations.
