Daugaard orders flags at half-staff for shooting victims

November 8, 2018

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Gov. Dennis Daugaard has asked that all U.S. and South Dakota flags be flown at half-staff as a sign of respect for the victims of the shooting in Thousand Oaks, California.

The order is in effect until sunset Saturday. The governor’s directive is in accordance with a proclamation by President Donald Trump.

Twelve people were killed when a hooded Marine combat veteran opened fire during college night at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, sending hundreds fleeing in panic before apparently taking his own life. The motive for the attack is not yet known.
