INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Gov. Eric Holcomb has ordered flags across Indiana be flown at half-staff in honor of victims in mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Holcomb is directing flags be flown at half-staff from Sunday until Thursday. He’s also asked Indiana businesses and residents to lower their flags half-staff.

President Donald Trump announced that he has authorized the lowering of flags to half-staff at all federal government buildings.

Two mass shootings at public places in Texas and Ohio claimed at least 29 lives in less than 24 hours and left many others wounded.

In the Texas border city of El Paso, a gunman opened fire Saturday in a shopping area. The attack killed 20 and wounded more than two dozen.

Hours later in Dayton, Ohio, a gunman wearing body armor opened fire in a popular nightlife area, killing nine and injuring dozens. The suspected shooter was shot to death by authorities.
