Records suggest defendant called 911 during Minnesota attack

BUFFALO, Minn. (AP) — Emergency dispatch transcripts show that among the calls to 911 reporting a shooting at a health clinic in Minnesota last month was one that apparently came from the man who said he carried out the attack.

A medical assistant was killed and four other staff members were injured in the Feb. 9 shooting at the Allina Crossroads Clinic in Buffalo, a small city about 40 miles northwest of Minneapolis.

Gregory Ulrich is charged with murder, attempted murder, and other counts. A 911 transcript obtained by KARE-TV shows that when Ulrich says he’s calling from the clinic, a 911 dispatcher immediately asks about the shooter.

Ulrich told the dispatcher that he was the shooter and to send “a lotta ambulances.”
