COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities say a second white supremacist prison gang member whose name surfaced during an investigation into the slaying of Colorado's prisons chief has been arrested.

El Paso County sheriff's officials say Colorado Springs authorities arrested Thomas Guolee around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. He was being held without bond for a parole violation.

Investigators have said Guolee isn't a suspect in the shooting death of Colorado Department of Corrections head Tom Clements, but his name and that of fellow 211 Crew member James Lohr came up during the investigation. Lohr was arrested in Colorado Springs last week after a short chase and is now being held on charges including vehicular eluding.

Evan Ebel is the only suspect that has been named in Clements' death. Ebel later died in a shootout with Texas authorities.
