INDIANAPOLIS (WOWO): Governor Pence is directing flags at state facilities statewide to be flown at half-staff starting today, in honor of the victims of yesterday's shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. Flags should stay at half-staff until sunset on Friday. Governor Pence is also asking businesses and residents across the state to lower their flags to half-staff to honor the victims of the tragedy. President Obama issued a proclamation yesterday requiring flags to be flown at half-staff "on all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, September 20, 2013."
