Buffalo, Minnesota: No Clear Motive After Gunman Shoots 5 at Allina Health Clinic

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Buffalo, Minnesota: No Clear Motive After Gunman Shoots 5 at Allina Health Clinic” – below is their description.

Authorities say a 67-year-old local man who was well-known to law enforcement opened fire at a Minnesota health clinic on Tuesday, wounding five people who were rushed to area hospitals.

The attack happened Tuesday morning at an Allina clinic in Buffalo, a community of about 15,000 people roughly roughly 40 miles (64 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis. Kelly Spratt, the president of Buffalo Health, said during a news conference that five patients were wounded and were rushed to hospitals, but that he didn’t know any of their conditions.

The alleged shooter was identified as Gregory Paul Ulrich, of Buffalo. Wright County Sheriff Sean Deringer said Ulrich was well-known to authorities before the attack.

Public online court records for Ulrich list a handful of arrests and convictions for drunken driving and possession of small amounts of marijuana from 2004 through 2014, mostly in Wright County, including two convictions for gross misdemeanor drunken driving that resulted in short jail sentences.

Police Chief Pat Budke said the attack did not appear to be an instance of domestic terrorism, though he didn’t elaborate.

The FBI sent bomb technicians to the scene. Members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’ enforcement group and special agents from the state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension also responded.
