Flags Lowered to Honor Victims of Atlanta Shooting

Pursuant to President Biden's Presidential Proclamation to lower the United States flag, Gov. Ralph Northam ordered that the flags of the United States and Virginia are to be flown at half-staff over the state Capitol and all local, state, and federal buildings and grounds in the commonwealth to honor the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated in the Atlanta metropolitan area on March 16.

The flags will be lowered until sunset on March 22.
