TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, and the proclamation issued by President Obama, Governor Sam Brownback ordered flags in Kansas to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sun-down beginning immediately through sun-set on Friday, July 22.

“This intentional attack on police officers is a tragedy, taking aim at the men and women who daily risk their lives to protect our own,” said Governor Brownback. “On behalf of all Kansans, the Lt. Governor and I send our deepest sympathies to the families of the officers who lost their lives or sustained injuries in this attack. I pray that as a nation we can together grieve these lives lost, ultimately finding unity and peace.”
