Man Charged With Killing Former Rochester Woman in Mass Shooting is Ruled Competent
Buffalo, MN (KROC-AM News) - The man charged with a deadly shooting at a medical clinic in central Minnesota has been found competent to stand trial.
The decision was handed down today by a judge in Wright County, where 67-year-old Gregory Ulrich is charged with 2nd-degree murder, multiple counts of attempted murder, and a felony explosives charge. He is accused of entering the Allina Health Clinic in Buffalo on February 9th and opening fire with a handgun, killing a former Rochester woman. 37-year-old Lindsay Overbay worked at the Mayo Clinic before moving to Buffalo and taking a job with Allina. Four other people were shot and wounded in the rampage.
The criminal complaint says Ulrich is also accused of detonating two improvised explosive devices in the clinic. An undetonated explosive was found at the scene after Ulrich's surrender and arrest and materials used to make explosives were discovered in a shed at his former home in Buffalo.
Police also located Ulrich's cell phone in the clinic and found it contained a recording similar to what the court record describes as a rambling video message he made alluding to an incident involving the Allina Clinic.
Ulrich is currently scheduled to return to court for a hearing on September 21st. His conditional bail is set at $5 million.
