State and local buildings will fly flags at half-staff in honor of Marjory Stoneman Douglas victims


In memory of the 17 people killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, flags at all state and local buildings, installations and grounds in Florida will be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Monday.

The massacre at the Parkland school took place on Feb. 14, 2018. Gov. Ron DeSantis, in a proclamation Friday, called it “one of Florida’s darkest days.”

Along with ordering flags flown at half-staff, he asked all Florida residents to pause for a moment of silence at 3 p.m. Monday.
