Governor orders flags to half-staff

Governor Scott Walker has ordered all flags in the state lowered to half-staff, following Sunday’s tragic shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek.

In a statement, Walker said “the people of Wisconsin join the Sikh community in mourning those killed yesterday and in remembering their lives. As our state comes together to care for the survivors, our hope is that the families and the whole Oak Creek community find healing and strength in the memory of their loved ones.”

Sunday’s shooting left seven people dead, including the shooter.
