Christie Orders New Jersey Flags Lowered After Shootings
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has ordered that flags on public buildings around New Jersey be lowered to half-staff on Wednesday in honor of those killed in the shooting rampage at a Colorado movie theater.
Twelve people were killed and about 60 were wounded when a gunman opened fire early Friday in a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., at a showing of the new Batman movie.
Christie’s order follows one by President Barack Obama that flags be flown at half-staff on federal buildings.
