February 12, 2021
BUFFALO, Minn. – Armed with four pipe bombs, one handgun and a Ziploc bag full of ammunition, Gregory Ulrich caught the public bus outside his motel Tuesday morning and rode the short trip to Allina Health Clinic.
Ulrich shot five clinic workers and set off three of the explosive devices - two in the lobby, a third in an adjacent workstation - in about six minutes from entering the building before surrendering to the officers arriving in the parking lot, according to a criminal complaint filed in Wright County on Thursday.
The investigation also revealed that despite a restraining order and an arrest for violating it, Ulrich used a permit from the Buffalo Police Department to purchase the handgun, according to a law enforcement source involved in the case who was not permitted to speak on the record.
