Victim killed in Buffalo clinic mass shooting identified as mother-of-two

The 37-year-old was one of five people shot when a gunman entered the Buffalo clinic.

One of the five victims of a mass shooting at an Allina Health clinic in Buffalo, Minnesota, has been identified. 

Lindsay Overbay, 37, was killed when a gunman entered her workplace and began shooting, according to a GoFundMe campaign that is raising money for two young children she leaves behind. WCCO-TV reports that Overbay was a medical assistant at the Buffalo clinic. 

The online fundraiser set up by friend Naiya Stubbe, which has raised more than $48,000 as of this writing, describes Overbay as a "beautiful mother, daughter and friend" who was a "bright light in many peoples lives," adding that she "could light up a room with her contagious laugh and 'I don't give a shit' attitude."

One of the four other victims has been discharged from the hospital, while three others continue to receive treatment at North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, according to KSTP-TV. The report says one of the three victims who remain hospitalized is in critical condition. BMTN is awaiting confirmation from the hospital regarding their conditions. 

The identities of the other victims have not been released. 

The suspected shooter, Gregory P. Ulrich, 67, is a longtime Buffalo resident whom Wright County Sheriff Sean Deringer said is "no stranger to law enforcement." A police report in 2018 noted Ulrich had threatened "mass violence" toward Allina Health facilities

"I will aggressively prosecute Ulrich for this horrible crime and the pain he caused to the victims, their families and the entire community," Wright County Attorney Brian Lutes said in a statement Wednesday. Lutes plans to file a criminal complaint charging Ulrich with second-degree murder and four counts of first-degree premeditated attempted murder, and possession of an explosive device on Thursday.

Police continue to investigate the crime and are asking anyone who witnessed anything in or around the Allina Health clinic to call the Wright County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 763-682-7733. 

Anyone in the Buffalo or surrounding communities who needs help coping with the tragedy is encouraged to reach out to the Central Minnesota Mental Health Center by calling the Buffalo office at 763-682-4400, or the 247/7 Crisis Line at 800-635-8008.
