Flags lowered to half-staff in honor of the victims of Capital Gazette mass shooting

Hartford

Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that, in accordance with a presidential proclamation, flags are to be lowered to half-staff throughout the country on Tuesday, July 3 in honor of the victims of the Capital Gazette mass shooting.

Last week, five victims tragically lost their lives in a targeted attack at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. The country will be honoring Robert Hiaasen, 59; Wendi Winters, 65; John McNamara, 56; Gerald Fischman, 61; and Rebecca Smith, 34.

Since no flag should fly higher than the U.S. flag, all other flags, including state, municipal, corporate, or other should be lowered as well during this time.
