Flags to be flown half-staff to honor Virginia shooting victims

Gov. Pete Ricketts announced Saturday that all American and Nebraska flags are to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims of the shooting in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The proclamation is in accord with one issued by President Donald Trump after Friday’s shooting. Twelve people were killed by an employee who opened fire in a city government building.

The flags are to be at half-staff until sunset Tuesday.
