| No Comments

A suicide call led to the shooting of Cold Springs officer Tom Decker Thursday night, said Larry Oakes of the Star Tribune.

Ryan Larson, who lived in an apartment above the bar where Decker was shot, has been accused of murder, and is currently in custody, Oakes said.

Chief Phil Jones described Decker as the office jokester, and said everyone who met him, liked him, according to a Kare11.com article.

Jones added that Decker was married with four kids, the article said.

The man taken into custody, 34-year-old Ryan Michael Larson of Cold Spring, was being held Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder, according to a WCCO.com article. The county attorney's office was considering criminal charges.

Several guns were found, according to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, but the agency was searching for additional weapons that may be related to Decker's death, the article said.
