Judge unseals affidavit for man accused of shooting at officers

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A judge has ruled to unseal the arrest affidavit for a Colorado Springs man who is accused of firing his gun at officers.

Previously, Thomas Guolee was a person of interest in the 2013 murder of Tom Clements, the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Corrections.

Guolee, 34, is facing several charges after an attempted burglary that led to gunfire with police on December 30.

Guolee is a known member of a white supremacist gang called the 211 Crew.

Back in 2013, his fellow gang member, Evan Ebel, was accused of walking up to Clement’s front door and shooting him when he opened it.

Now, authorities are looking at possible ties between these cases.

This may be the group’s second attack on someone who has ties with Colorado prisons. The DOC has confirmed the home Guolee was trying to enter in December is owned by one of their former employees.

Guolee sits behind bars on several serious charges, including attempted burglary and attempted murder of a police officer.

The affidavit says on December 30, Guolee tried to break into the home of a former DOC employee on Sierra Springs Drive, and at the time, his wife and their kids were inside. The document says his wife heard Guolee trying to open the garage door, and then gunshots. Officers had already arrived on scene, and Guolee was shooting at them before he drove off.

After he crashed into another car, police shot and injured Guolee and took him into custody.

Meanwhile, the affidavit states, the wife and kids had barricaded themselves in a bedroom.

No one else was injured in the incident.

Guolee is currently being held on a $1 million bond.

These documents were sealed until now to protect the investigation and the potential jurors from becoming biased.

Guolee was questioned in Clement’s death but was never charged.

DOC employees have been notified about the break-in.
