Governor Whitmer orders flags to half-staff for victims of Oxford shooting
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff across the state to honor and remember the victims of the shooting at Oxford High School on Tuesday.
"My heart breaks for the students, teachers, staff, and families of Oxford High School,” said Governor Whitmer. “The death of multiple students and the shooting of many others, including a teacher, is horrific. I want to thank the first responders on the ground working hard to keep people safe as law enforcement officials investigate this shooting and get the community the help it needs right now. Our state is in mourning alongside the parents who had their children taken from them today and the entire community in Oxford.”
Residents, businesses, local governments, and schools are asked to lower their flags immediately until further notice.
