Illinois Flags to Fly at Half-Staff to Honor Orlando Victims

Posted by wlpo on June 13, 2016

Flags will be flying at half-staff across the state this week in honor of the victims of the deadly terrorist attack at an Orlando nightclub.

Governor Bruce Rauner issued a statement following the shooting saying all U.S. and Illinois State Flags are to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Thursday. Rauner called the attack a “senseless tragedy” and “deplorable.” He also said the State of Illinois stands with the State of Florida.

At least 50 people were killed and more than 50 others wounded in the shooting which took place at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning.
