Beshear Orders Flags to Half Staff in Wake of Colorado Shootings
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is ordering flags across the commonwealth to half-staff in wake of last week’s shootings in Aurora, Colorado.
A lone gunman opened fire in a Colorado cinema last week, killing 15 people and wounding dozens more.
The flags will remain at half staff until sundown on Friday, exactly one week from the shootings. President Barack Obama ordered all flags at federal buildings to half staff in the aftermath of the shooting.
