FRIDAY: N.J. will fly flags at half-staff for Vegas shooting victims

Governor Chris Christie signed an executive order on Wednesday honoring the victims of Sunday night’s Las Vegas shooting by lowering New Jersey’s flags to half-staff.

Executive Order No. 234 provides that all state buildings will fly their flags at half-staff throughout Friday, October 6th.

“The atrocity in Las Vegas took the lives of at least 58 innocent people and injured over 500 others,” said Governor Christie in a statement accompanying the Executive Order’s promulgation. “Countless families throughout our nation have been devastated by this shocking and senseless act of violence. It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of the victims of this mass murder, and we pause to offer our deepest sympathies to their families, friends, and loved ones.”
