MONUMENT, Colo. — Colorado's governor plans to speak about the killing of the state Corrections Department chief.
Tom Clements was shot around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when he answered his front door in Monument, north of Colorado Springs. Police are searching for the shooter.
Gov. John Hickenlooper appointed Clements to the post in 2011 after he served for more than three decades in the Missouri Department of Corrections.
Hickenlooper scheduled a news conference Wednesday morning.
After Clements was appointed, Hickenlooper praised Clements for his approach to incarceration, saying Clements relied on proven methods to improve prison safety inside and programs that have been shown to improve successful outcomes after offenders are released from prison.
The home is located in a wooded area with expensive homes on 2-acre lots.
