HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Governor Tom Wolf has ordered all U.S. and Pennsylvania flags at the state Capitol and other facilities lowered to half-staff in remembrance of five service members who were killed in last week’s Chattanooga, Tennessee shooting.
Wolf’s order followed similar moves at the U.S. Capitol and the White House.
Flags shall remain at half-staff until sunset on July 25.
“The people of Pennsylvania stand with the victims, their friends and families, and all Tennesseans after the senseless act of violence in Chattanooga last week,” Wolf said in a statement. “By lowering the flags today, we honor the heroes’ lives that were lost in brave service to this country.”
Authorities say Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez killed four Marines and a Navy sailor at two Tennessee military sites.
