Flags lowered to half-staff across Georgia to honor Wisconsin shooting victims


The United States and Georgia state flags have been lowered to half-staff in honor of those affected by Sunday’s shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis.

Gov. Nathan Deal signed an executive order on Monday ordering the flags to be flown at half-staff through sunset Friday on all state buildings and grounds.

“The people of Georgia share the grief of the families and friends of those who were injured or killed, and we pray for their comfort and healing in the days to come,” the order states.
