NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Gov. Ned Lamont has ordered the flags of the United States of America and the state of Connecticut lowered in honor of the victims killed in a shooting in Nashville, Tennessee.

Three children and three adults were victims of the shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville Monday morning.

Metro Nashville Police identified the victims as 9-year-olds Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, 61-year-old Cynthia Peak, 60-year-old Katherine Koonce, and 61-year-old Mike Hill. All three adults worked at the school. Police later identified the shooter as a 28-year-old from Nashville.

Flags should be lowered to half-staff immediately until sunset on Friday, March 31.

“I am sickened and heartbroken by another mass shooting at a school by a person with assault weapons,” Lamont said. “Our elected leaders in Congress have become too complacent and comfortable with doing nothing to protect Americans from this epidemic of gun violence. The overwhelming majority of Americans support meaningful reforms on gun violence prevention and it is far past time that Congress acts.”

The governor’s order came after President Joe Biden issued a proclamation ordering the flag of the United States to be lowered at the White House and all public buildings.
