| No Comments

A Cold Spring police officer was fatally shot Thursday evening when responding to a report of a suicidal person, Larry Oakes reported.

Officer Tom Decker, 31, was shot and killed behind Winners Sports Bar after responding to a call about a suicidal person at a Main Street apartment around 11 p.m. Decker died on the scene because, according to witnesses, he had been shot in the face.

Police have arrested Ryan Michael Larson, 34, on suspicion of murdering a police officer. He was a resident in the apartment above the sports bar and is also a co-owner with his parents, Oakes wrote.

Decker leaves behind a wife and four children.
