Decatur, Texas – A paroled Colorado inmate was involved in a Texas police chase that resulted in a crash and led to a shootout with police. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), a sheriff’s deputy attempted to pull over Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, Thursday morning before the car chase ensued.

Police shot Ebel after he opened fire on them after he crashed into a semi. He is not expected to survive his injuries according to authorities.

Ebel may be linked to the killing of a Colorado prison chief who was shot at his home. The matter is still under investigation.

Gov. John Hickenlooper is quoted by the AP as stating of the case, “We don’t know yet exactly whether this is the guy… There’s some indication. I hope it is.”
