Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has ordered flags to be lowered to half-staff immediately following this Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Colorado flags will remain lowered on all public buildings until sunset Wednesday, October 31, to honor the victims.

U.S. President Donald Trump has also issued a proclamation ordering flags lowered at public buildings across the nation and at embassies and other federal facilities around the world.
