All PA Flags Lowered to Half-Staff

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett ordered all Pennsylvania flags across the state lowered to half-staff immediately in honor of the Connecticut school shooting victims and their families.

Corbett also issued the following statement:

“My wife, Susan, and I want to offer our condolences to the families and friends of the victims of today’s tragic shooting in Connecticut. As parents, we can imagine nothing more horrific than such a violent, senseless act committed against innocent children.

“On behalf of all Pennsylvanians, we want the families of all these victims to know they are in our thoughts and prayers and we share in their grief.’’

Flags shall remain at half-staff until sundown on Tuesday, Dec. 18.

All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
