Colorado prisons placed on lockdown again

DECATUR, Texas (AP) - All Colorado state prisons have put been on lockdown.
The corrections department posted an alert online Friday but didn't explain why the security measure was being taken. It's the second lockdown since prisons' chief Tom Clements was killed at his home Tuesday night.
A law enforcement source says a man being investigated in the slaying was a Colorado parolee who was a member of white supremacist prison gang. Evan Spencer Ebel died after a shootout with authorities in Texas. Colorado investigators would not confirm the gang identity but said they were maintaining extra security for government officials.
