The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado announced this afternoon that the gun used by Evan Ebel to shoot Montague County Deputy James Boyd and also used in a shootout with Wise County officers last Thursday is the same gun used to kill Tom Clements, the chief director of the Colorado Department of Corrections last Tuesday. The findings were confirmed following an analysis of the shell casings by the Colorado Springs Metro Crime Lab. “The confirmation goes well beyond acknowledging the same caliber and brand of ammunition being used, but rather is based on unique, and often microscopic markings left on the casings at both scenes,” according to a statement released by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Ebel was killed following a shootout with officers at the end of a high-speed chase that ended at the intersection of U.S. 380 and Business 380 in Decatur Thursday morning. The Messenger also learned of evidence found inside the car Ebel was driving at the time of the shootings. Read more here.
