PICKWICK, Minn. (AP) — A former Winona State University professor shot in his home in Winona County has died at a La Crosse, Wis., hospital.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says 72-year-old Mickey Ellenbecker was apparently shot in the back of the head at his rural Pickwick home Saturday. The sheriff says one person has been detained in the shooting.

Brand says he knew Ellenbecker because the victim had worked as a probation officer in the 1970s. He says Ellenbecker lived in Winona before moving to Pickwick where he raised horses. The Post-Bulletin (http://bit.ly/OdnS17 ) reports Ellenbecker died Sunday at Gundersen Health System.
