Flags at half-staff out of respect for victims of Texas shooting

President Donald Trump has ordered United States flags immediately lowered to half-staff by Presidential Proclamation out of respect for the victims of a shooting that occurred in a Texas church on November 5th.

“We are deeply saddened by the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, which took the lives of more than 25 innocent victims while they were attending church.  As we mourn the victims of this unprovoked act of violence, we pray for healing and comfort for all the family members and loved ones who are grieving,” the proclamation read.

Flags are to continue to fly at half-staff until sunset on Thursday, November 9th.
