Buffalo (WCCO) – The Wright County Sheriff’s Office has identified the suspect in this morning’s shooting at a Buffalo health clinic as 67-year-old Gregory Ulrich. Buffalo Police Chief Pat Budke says the suspect was known to local law enforcement.
Officials believe he acted alone and are not looking for additional suspects. They do not believe it to be related to domestic terrorism.
“The history that we have as a department with this individual makes it most likely that this incident was targeted at this facility or someone within that facility,” Buffalo Police Chief Pat Budke said. “He has lived in this community for quite a long time and has had contact with health care within the community during that time.”
Wright County officials confirmed that five patients were taken from the clinic. The conditions of the victims are not known at this time. Officials would not confirm if the victims were patients at the clinic or health care employees.
A nearby Super 8 motel was also evacuated after suspicious packages were found there.
