Gov. Gary Herbert ordered Utah flags to fly at half-staff Saturday and to remain there until sunset Wednesday.
The move is to honor the victims of Friday’s theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. The shooting killed 12 and injured 58.
A press release from his office said Herbert issued the order in conjunction with one from President Obama ordering flags to half-staff at federal facilities. Herbert’s order is effective immediately.
