Scott orders flags lowered for Arizona shooting victimsby Dara Kam | January 10th, 2011
Gov. Rick Scott has ordered flags flown at half-staff at state and local government buildings until Friday night out of respect for the 19 victims of an Arizona gunman, in keeping with President Obama’s order for federal buildings in the U.S. and overseas.
The president led a moment of silence at 11 a.m. this morning to honor the victims of the shooter who killed six people, including a young child, and injured 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The Arizona Congresswoman was shot through the head and remains in critical condition.
