COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – Governor Mike DeWine ordered all flags of the United States and the State of Ohio to be flown at half-staff on Tuesday.
It’s in remembrance of the 10 people killed in the mass shooting at a Colorado supermarket on Monday.
DeWine said the flags should be lowered at all public buildings and grounds through sunset on March 27.
The victims in the attack at a King Soopers supermarket in Boulder range in age from 20 to 65.
The Boulder Police Department said a suspect has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder in the mass shooting. Investigators don’t know yet why the suspect opened fire.
It was the nation’s deadliest mass shooting since a 2019 assault on a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, where a gunman killed 22 people in a rampage that police said targeted Mexicans.
