La. governor orders flags at half-staff for Florida mass shooting victims
BATON ROUGE - Flags will fly at half-staff at Louisiana public buildings to honor the victims of a weekend mass shooting in Florida, Governor John Bel Edwards announced Monday.
Edwards said the American flag will fly with the state flag at half-staff until sunset Thursday. Sunday, hours after the attack, the governor said Louisiana stands ready to assist Florida to bring justice for those whose lives were lost.
Monday afternoon, Edwards, Senate President John Alario, House Speaker Taylor Barras, and members of the Louisiana Legislature participated in a "Moment of Unity" in the rotunda of the Louisiana State Capitol.
