Gov. Daugaard Asks For Flags at Half-Staff Through Wednesday For Shooting Victims

 

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has asked that all flags in South Dakota be flown at half-staff from 8 a.m. until sunset through Wednesday, July 25, 2012, in respect for victims of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

 

“This was a senseless and tragic act,” the Governor said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.”

 

President Obama has ordered flags at half-staff  through Wednesday at all public buildings and grounds, and military facilities, out of respect for those who were killed and injured in the attack.
