Nebraska flags to fly at half staff to honor victims of Boulder shooting

(Undated) -- Flags in Nebraska will fly at half staff to honor and remember the victims of the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado.

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts made the proclamation on Tuesday after President Biden ordered the flags be lowered following Monday's shooting. Ten people were killed, including a Boulder Police officer, after a 21 year old man opened fire at a King's Soopers grocery store.

This is the second time in a week the White House has ordered flags be lowered in honor of mass shooting victims. Last week, flags were ordered to be lowered in remembrance of eight people killed in a shooting spree in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

All U.S. and Nebraska flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Saturday.
