FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) - Gov. Matt Bevin has ordered both American and state flags at public office buildings lowered to half-staff beginning immediately until sunset on Saturday to honor the victims and their families of Wednesday night’s tragedy in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
All individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies are encouraged to join in this tribute of lowering the flag to honor the victims and families of this tragedy.
Using a smoke bomb and a handgun, a hooded former Marine dressed all in black opened fire during college night at a country music bar in Southern California, killing 12 people and sending hundreds fleeing in panic before apparently taking his own life, authorities said Thursday.
Authorities said the motive for the attack Wednesday night was under investigation.
