HARRISBURG, Pa.–Governor Tom Wolf has ordered flags in Pennsylvania to be flown half-staff through Monday, Dec. 7 as a mark of respect for the individuals who fell victim to Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.

The White House issued a proclamation for flags across the nation to remain lowered through Dec. 7 and returned to full staff at 12 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 8.

“Pennsylvanians thoughts are with the victims, their families, and the entire San Bernardino community following tragic mass shooting there,” said Governor Tom Wolf.  “This violence is absolutely senseless.”

Flags will be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and at all state offices and agencies.
