Ryan Larson, the man arrested and later released after the shooting death of Cold Spring police officer Tom Decker, was booked and released from jail Friday.

Larson, 34, was arrested in Wright County around 1:30 a.m. on a bench warrant and released about 2 p.m. after paying a $5,000 bond, KSTP-TV reports.

Earlier this week, Larson turned himself into police to face a felony charge for stalking an ex-girlfriend. A judge ordered Larson to stay at least 10 miles away from the woman's house.

The new warrant was issued after Larson violated his terms of release, according to KSTP. It's unclear exactly what the violation was.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is supervising the Decker investigation and have not cleared Larson as a suspect. Larson has maintained his innocence in the shooting.
