Man convicted of attack on Minnesota clinic faces life imprisonment

BUFFALO, Minn. (AP) – A man who stormed a Minnesota medical clinic, shot one person and injured four others faces a mandatory life sentence without parole if convicted Friday.

Gregory Ulrich opened fire on February 9, 2021 at the Allina Crossroads Clinic in Buffalo, a city of approximately 16,400 residents 40 miles northwest of Minneapolis. A jury earlier this month found Ulrich guilty of the 11 charges against him, including first degree murder for the death of Lindsay Overbay, a 37-year-old medical assistant.

Four other clinic workers survived but suffered serious injuries.

At the trial, Ulrich, 68, admitted to purchasing the gun, assembling pipe bombs and carrying out the attack. He insisted, however, that he was driven by excruciating pain and that he said that Allina’s medical team had failed and that he never intended to kill anyone.

Prosecutors claimed Ulrich knew what he was doing that day. They played some cell phone videos that Ulrich had recorded of himself a few months before the attack, in which he told older people to grab their guns and go to their clinic to kill as many nurses as possible if they weren’t given pain medication.

A witness testified at the trial that she heard the gunman call 911 and tell the dispatcher to “send a lot of ambulances. There are a lot of spinal injuries and I have bombs about to go off.”

Law enforcement officers said after the attack that Ulrich was known to them and angry about his medical treatment.
