Opening statements for Buffalo clinic shooting suspect’s trial to begin Monday

The trial for the man accused of killing one and wounding four others during a shooting at a Buffalo, Minnesota medical clinic last year will begin opening statements on Monday, according to the Wright County Attorney’s Office.

Opening statements are tentatively scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Monday.

The suspect, 68-year-old Gregory Ulrich, faces charges that include murder and attempted murder for the Feb. 9, 2021, shooting at Allina Health Clinic. He also faces charges for setting off pipe bombs during the attack.

Prosecutors say that Ulrich opened fire at the clinic because he was angry about the medical treatment he received there. Lindsay Overbay, a 37-year-old medical assistant, was killed in the shooting.
