The night before Governor John Hickenlooper planned to sign Colorado’s toughest gun laws in a decade, his prisons director Tom Clements was shot dead as he answered the door of his home,  Lt. Jeff Kramer, of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said earlier today.

“There is no evidence of a home invasion,” The Denver Post quoted Lieutenant Jeff Kramer, a spokesman for the El Paso County sheriff’s office, as saying. “We know of his position and realize that it is a possible motive for a crime such as this,” Kramer told the newspaper.

Kramer also said investigators have not ruled anything out, but it could have been related to his job.

A family member called 911 to report the shooting and officers found Clements, 58, dead. Search dogs have been called in to comb through a wooded area around Clements’ home, and authorities were going house to house trying to find out what neighbors heard and saw.

Clements was 58. He is survived by his wife, Lisa, and their two daughters.
