ST. CLOUD - Charges against a man accused of shooting and killing officer Tom Decker have been delayed.

The Stearns County Attorney's office requested a 24 hour extension of the hold on 34-year-old Ryan Larson.  Judge Vicki Landwehr approved the extension.

Larson is being held in the Stearns County Jail in connection of last Thursday's murder of officer Decker.

Deputies are continuing their search for the shotgun used to kill the officer.

The investigation is ongoing.
