In honor of the victims of the tragedy in Virginia Beach, Va., Oregon Governor Kate Brown orders all flags at public institutions throughout Oregon be flown at half-staff beginning immediately until sunset on Tuesday, June 4.
"Words cannot express the sense of loss yet another tragic shooting brings to Dan and me," Brown said. "No one should have to face the fear of gun violence anywhere, and especially not at work, at school, or at their place of worship."
Brown's order follows the Friday killing of 12 people at a municipal building in Virginia Beach by a co-worker. The co-worker was shot and killed in a gunfight with police.
