A moment of silence is planned for 11 a.m. Tuesday to mark one week since a man walked into a health clinic in Buffalo, Minnesota, and shot five people, killing one of them. 

Gregory Ulrich, 67, is charged with murder, attempted murder, weapons and explosives charges in connection to the Feb. 9 fatal mass shooting. He's accused of walking into the clinic just before 11 a.m., shooting staff and setting off three pipe bombs. 

"The senseless acts that took place at our Allina Health Clinic-Buffalo Crossroads have left us heartbroken and we are deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support," Allina Health said in a Facebook post to share plans to observe the somber one-week mark. 

Allina has invited Minnesotans to take a moment of silence at 11 a.m., to wear purple in honor of the Buffalo community, display purple lights, and change their social media profile pictures to include them in purple. 

Allina Health says there will be purple light displays throughout Buffalo, as well as at Allianz Field in St. Paul and other Minnesota landmarks. 

Ulrich is accused of killing 37-year-old medical assistant Lindsay Overbay and injuring four other Crossroads employees: Sherry Curtis, a licensed practical nurse; Antonya Fransen-Pruden, who is studying to become a nurse; Jen Gipson, a medical assistant; and Tammy Schauffler.
