Dalrymple directs flags to fly at half-staff for shooting victims

BISMARCK — Gov. Jack Dalrymple is asking all state government agencies and North Dakotans to fly the U.S. and state flags at half-staff on Tuesday to honor the victims of last week's Connecticut shooting.

Dalrymple is directing all flags to remain at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday to show respect for the victims.

Authorities say 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot to death 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Friday, including 20 children, then killed himself.
