ALBERTVILLE, Minn. (AP) – Students are mourning a popular teacher who was shot and killed in an apparent homicide in rural Paynesville.

43-year-old Timothy Larson was a special education teacher for three years at St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West.

Superintendent Jim Behle calls Larson “a teacher that you would want your child to have.”

An 81-year-old man and his 45-year-old son have been arrested in the death and are being held in the Kandiyohi County Jail.

81-year-old Delbert Huber of rural Paynesville called the sheriff’s office Saturday to say that he shot and killed a man following an argument. Officers arrived at a home in Burbank Township and found Larson dead from an apparent gun shot wound.

Huber and his 45-year-old son Timothy Huber were arrested. The father faces a charge of second degree murder. Timothy Huber is expected to be charged with aiding an offender and liability for the crimes of another.

The suspects have not been formally charged.
