New images of Texas shootout; bullets used match ammo used in CO

DECATUR, Texas -

Investigators say the bullets the Colorado murder suspect used in the shootout with North Texas police and deputies is the same ammunition used in one of the Colorado murders.

Investigators confirm they found a Domino's Pizza carrier and uniform in Evan Ebel's car that may link Ebel to another Colorado murder.

Colorado investigators have finished their part of evidence gathering and are back in Denver.

DPS Crimes Scene Technicians re-visited the crash scene Friday where the shootout ended looking for more evidence to make sure no stone goes unturned. 

"We have no idea at this time why he was in Texas," said Wise County Sheriff David Walker.

The search for answers now turns to this Cadillac driven by 28-year-old Evan Ebel, right after he shot Montague County Sheriff's Deputy James Boyd.

After a high speed chase where Ebel shot at multiple patrol cars, he crashed into a rock hauler, was shot and later died. 

Pictures taken by the Wise County Messenger shows first responders working on the shooter, Even Ebel.

Amid the entire shootout, Ebel was killed by one bullet to the head.

Investigators from Colorado, DPS, Texas Ranger and Wise County have combed the car for forensics and DNA evidence.

They already seized two duffle bags, a shovel, and a phone from the car.

They'll analyze the phone for possible contacts, phone numbers and other digital evidence that may add to their case.

"Anything we need done, any lead we need chased down doesn't matter who it is where it is or what state it is it's being done and done quickly," said Wise County Sheriff David Walker.

The violent crime spree is now part of a larger multi-state investigation.

Denver police now confirm they think Ebel may have killed pizza delivery man Nathan Leon on Sunday.

They now believe Ebel used the pizza delivery uniform to coax Colorado Department of Corrections Director Tom Clements to his front door Tuesday night, and then shot him to death.

According to the search warrant affidavit, a Domino's pizza carrier and uniform were found in the Cadillac.

The affidavit revealed another link between Ebel and the Colorado murder.

It states, "Hornady 9mm shell casings were recovered at the scene, which are the same brand and caliber used by the unknown suspect in the Wise County incident."

Investigators suspect he was part of a white supremacist prison gang and may have targeted the prison director out of loyalty to them.

"We're taking steps in a positive direction every day, every hour. We have detectives and deputies and agents that are out doing interviews, doing video surveillance, doing everything to get facts. When we gather things together we'll be able to find out who was involved in the murder of Executive Director Tom Clements," said Inspector John San Augustine from El Paso County, Colorado.
