Cold Spring marks 1 year since officer's death
The St. Cloud Times reports that city employees organized the Friday vigil at the request of Decker's widow, Alicia (http://on.sctimes.com/18rRbXj ). She spoke during the vigil, and the crowd sang "Amazing Grace."
Decker was on duty last Nov. 29 when he responded to a report of a possibly suicidal man in an apartment above a downtown bar. He was shot behind the bar as he looked for the man in question, who police later cleared in the shooting.
A second man whom police were prepared to arrest for the killing committed suicide in early January.
