President Joe Biden late Sunday ordered flags at half-staff in honor of the victims of the mass shooting in Monterey Park that left 10 dead and 10 injured Saturday night.
Flags will be at half-staff until Thursday night, according to Biden’s proclamation.
“I hereby declare that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset January 26, 2023,” Biden’s proclamation read in part.
Biden earlier sent his condolences to the victims of the shooting and their families.
There is no word yet if he plans to visit Southern California in the aftermath of the shooting.
