The woman accused of providing the gun used to kill Colorado’s prisons chief is now facing a federal charge. A woman was arrested after a federal grand jury charged her with knowingly giving a firearm to Evan Ebel.
Five days before Evan Ebel is suspected of killing Colorado’s prisons chief, and days before he allegedly shot a North Texas sheriff’s deputy, the 28-year-old’s electronic monitoring bracelet stopped working.
Investigators found bomb-making materials and bloody clothes in the car of a man suspected in the shooting of a North Texas sheriff’s deputy and murder of the Colorado prisons chief.
Officials say “unique and often microscopic markings” found on shell casings in North Texas and Colorado lead investigators to conclude that the gun Evan Ebel used to shoot at authorities in Montague and Wise County was the same one used to kill Tom Clements in Colorado.
Attorney Jack Ebel testified that solitary confinement in a Colorado prison was destroying the psyche of his son, Evan. Now authorities are investigating whether Evan Ebel is linked to a Colorado assassination and the shooting of a Texas deputy.
A high-speed chase through two North Texas counties ended with both a sheriff’s deputy and a suspect being shot.
