Alek Minassian did not complete his recruit training and asked to be voluntarily released after 16 days.
Meanwhile, he appeared in court this morning and was charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 of attempted murder.
Family and friends have identified one of the victims.

She was also a long time volunteer with Tennis Canada, working at the Rogers Cup each summer.
A South Korean news agency reports two nationals were among the victims, a third was seriously injured and three are unaccounted for.
Seneca College says a female student was also among those killed.
Flowers and messages of condolence continue being dropped off and written at a growing memorial set up in Olive Square, near Yonge and Finch.
Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Premier Kathleen Wynne and Mayor John Tory stopped by.
Tory says the attack will leave a scar on the city but that scars are part of the healing process.
