Governor David Ige has ordered all United States and Hawai’i State flags to be flown at half-staff through Monday, Dec. 7 as a mark of respect for the individuals who fell victim to Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif.

“Our hearts are heavy with grief for the victims of this senseless act of violence and our thoughts are with their families, colleagues, and friends. We mourn along with the San Bernardino community,” Governor Ige said.

Flags will be flown at half staff at the State Capitol and at all state offices and agencies, including the Hawai’i National Guard throughout the state.
