DENVER (AP) — Investigators say they have recovered a gun that was sought after an alleged white supremacist gang member was arrested during the investigation into the killing of Colorado's prisons chiefs.

James Lohr was arrested early Friday after a brief chase in Colorado Springs.

Investigators say surveillance video showed a firearm being thrown from Lohr's vehicle before his arrest and two men spotting it and taking it. Investigators say someone who received the gun turned it in Friday night.

Authorities had said they were looking for Lohr and a fellow 211 Crew prison gang member as persons of interest in the slaying of Tom Clements.

The only named suspect is another 211 member who died after a shootout in Texas.

Lohr was arrested on warrants unrelated to Clements' death.
