Gregory Ulrich Biography Gregory Ulrich Wiki
A judge on Friday imposed mandatory life in prison on a man who broke into a Minnesota medical clinic, shot one person and wounded four others, saying the act was inscrutable.
Gregory Ulrich opened fire on February 9, 2021 at the Allina Crossroads Clinic in Buffalo, a city approximately 16,400 miles northwest of Minneapolis. Earlier this month, a jury found Ulrich guilty of all 11 counts, including first degree murder, for killing Lindsay Overbay, a 37-year-old medical assistant.
Four other clinic workers survived but were seriously injured.
Wright County District Judge Catherine McPherson said during the sentencing hearing that the attack was “simply unthinkable.” McPherson said “words are woefully inadequate” and that the court “recognized the strength and courage of those who testified against Ulrich.”
In court, 68-year-old Ulrich admitted buying the gun, assembling pipe bombs and carrying out the attack. However, he claimed that he was driven by excruciating pain that he felt Allina’s medical team was not treating properly and never intended to kill anyone.

Prosecutors claimed that Ulrich knew what he was doing that day. They released two videos on the cellphone that Ulrich had taken months before the attack. In the videos, he said older people should take up arms and go to their clinics to kill as many nurses as possible if they were cut off from painkillers.
A witness said he heard the gunman call 911 and tell the receptionist to “send a lot of ambulances.” There are a lot of spinal injuries and I have bombs about to go off.
Police said they knew Ulrich after the attack and were upset by his medical treatment.
The sentence does not provide for the possibility of conditional release.
