“As a mark of respect for the victims,” flags to fly at half-staff

President Donald Trump ordered by Presidential Proclamation today that flags are to be flown at half-staff “as a mark of respect for the victims” of the shooting that occurred yesterday in Las Vegas, NV.

Over 50 people are reported to have died and over 500 injured as a result of a gunman who opened fire on an outdoor concert from a room on the 32nd floor of an building adjacent to the event. The gunman was reported to have killed himself before police could reach him.

Flags are to remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset, Friday, October 6th.
