Texas police killed Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, after a high-speed chase Thursday through Decatur, Texas.
He is also considered a suspect in the death of Tom Clements, executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, who was shot at his home near Denver last Tuesday, Colorado authorities say. He is believed to have shot and killed a pizza delivery man and used his uniform to get to Clements' front door without raising suspicion.
