Buffalo clinic gunman gave eerie warning day before shooting

The gunman who killed a nurse and wounded four other people at a Minnesota health clinic delivered a haunting message a day earlier, telling a local motel owner, “tomorrow my work will be definitely done.”

Gregory Ulrich, who is due to make his first court appearance Thursday, made the comment to Buffalo, Minnesota Super 8 motel owner Mona Patel Monday when she offered him a discount on a room, CNN said in a report.

“He was telling me he didn’t have much money because he was over 65,” Patel told the network. “He said, ‘Mona, I don’t have a car and I don’t have much money.’”

“I said if you take a whole week, I will give you a cheaper rate because you have a shortage of money,” she told Ulrich. “And he said, ‘No, tomorrow my work will be done. So, just give me one (more) night and if it is not done I can buy more nights.’”

Patel said she didn’t pry.

The following day, police said Ulrich walked into the Allina Health Clinic in Buffalo, about 40 miles outside of Minneapolis, and opened fire.

Five people were hit and a medical assistant, Lindsay Overbay, 37, later died.

Ulrich is charged with second-degree murder, four counts of attempted first-degree premeditated murder, and possession of explosive or incendiary devices.

Records show he had more than 40 prior encounters with cops.
