Governor calls for moment of silence tomorrow to remember Moscow shooting victims

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has called for a statewide moment of silence tomorrow at 1 p.m. Mountain time, noon Pacific, to remember the victims of this week's shooting in Moscow, in which three people died. Here is Otter's statement:

“It is important that everyone in Idaho take time in the wake of this horrendous act to remember those who have lost their lives and offer our support to the families, friends, and Moscow community as they mourn this tragedy. I ask that all Idahoans observe a moment of silence on Wednesday, January 14, at 1 p.m. Mountain Time (noon Pacific) to let our friends and families in Moscow know they are in our thoughts and prayers, and that they are not alone in their grief.”
