Governor Dannel P. Malloy, in response to a proclamation from President Barack Obama, has directed all U.S. and state flags in Connecticut to fly at half-staff until sunset on July 25 honoring the victims of the tragic shooting in Colorado.
“What happened in Colorado is a traumatic and terrible event — the victims and their families are in our prayers today, and our thoughts are with the people of Colorado. We join them in their anguish and their outrage at this senseless act of violence, and offer our support during this very difficult time.”
At least 12 people were killed and 59 wounded in one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history.
