Formal charges of murder and attempted murder were filed Thursday morning against Gregory Ulrich, the suspected gunman in the deadly shooting Tuesday at an Allina clinic in Buffalo.
Investigators say Ulrich, 67, of Buffalo, set off two homemade bombs in the clinic and shot five people, leaving four seriously injured and one dead.
The violence occurred in the span of about 6 minutes before officers arrived and found him lying face down amid the destruction.

“Gregory Ulrich went to Allina clinic knowing that he was going to shoot up that clinic. Gregory Ulrich went to that clinic knowing he that was going explode bombs at the clinic.”
“He did just that, cowardly injuring innocent people, one of them fatally,” Wright County Attorney Brian Lutes said during a morning news conference.
Ulrich is charged with one count of second-degree intentional murder, four counts of first-degree premeditated attempted murder, one count of discharging an explosive device, and one count of carrying a pistol without a permit in a public place.
If convicted of the charges, Ulrich faces decades in prison — 40 years for the second-degree murder charge alone.
Ulrich made his first appearance in Wright County court Thursday morning.
In a virtual hearing, the judge ordered that Ulrich’s bail be set at $10 million without conditions and $5 million with conditions. He remains in the Wright County Jail.
His next court appearance was set for March 22.

According to the criminal complaint, Ulrich walked into Allina Clinic Crossroads just before 11 a.m. Tuesday and opened fire moments after staff asked if they could help him.
First, he shot two people in the reception area. He shot a third person in the back as they tried to run away.
The fourth victim was shot six times, with the bullets striking their chest, abdomen, back, and arms.
The fifth victim was shot in the abdomen, with the bullet hitting their liver and spine.
