State flags going to half staff for Roseburg

OLYMPIA -- Gov. Jay Inslee ordered flags at state offices lowered to half staff to honor the victims of the mass shooting in Roseberg, Oregon.

In an order issued late Friday afternoon, Inslee's office said he was issuing the directive along with the White House, which issued a similar one for federal buildings. "Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join in this recognition," the directive says. 

Flags at state buildings will stay lowered until close of business or sunset on Tuesday.
