Gov. Bryant orders flags to be flown at half-staff after Texas church shooting

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant ordered flags across the state to be flown at half-staff to honor the victims of the Texas church shooting that claimed 26 lives.

The order comes after President Donald Trump's Executive Order No. 1408, which ordered flags on all public buildings and grounds across the U.S. to be flown at half-staff.

Flags are to be flown at half-staff until sunset, November 9, 2017.
