Governor Mike Pence (R-IN) is directing flags at state facilities in all counties of Indiana to be flown at half-staff Tuesday.

President Obama signed a proclamation this morning honoring the victims of Monday's tragedy in Boston and ordering flags nationwide to be flown at half-staff.

Per the president's directive, flags are to remain at half-staff until sunset on Saturday, April 20.

Governor Pence also asks businesses and residents across the state to lower their flags to half-staff to honor the victims and their families.
