Gov. Brown orders flags lowered to honor shooting victims


Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday ordered all the flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Saturday in honor of the victims of the Southern California mass shooting.

“Waking up to news of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, I am heartbroken, once again, for those who have lost their loved ones,” Brown said in a statement. “Haven’t we learned that nowhere in our country will be immune to gun violence until action is taken? Congress, please act now.”

The White House also issued a national flag order, and the full presidential proclamation will be available here.
