The suspected shooter in the Friday slaying of two Bastrop police detectives belonged to a white supremacist prison gang, Louisiana State Police confirmed today.
Dennis Clem, 24, was a member of the Aryan Circle, according to Troop F spokesman Mark Dennis.
Clem is believed to have shot and killed Bastrop detectives John Smith, 40, and Charles “Chuck” Wilson, 34, at the Budget Inn in downtown Bastrop.
Two ambulance workers were also wounded when they responded to the scene.
Clem’s girlfriend Tonya Smith fled the area, but was arrested Sunday morning in Houston.
She remains in custody in Harris County, Texas.
