COLUMBUS, Ohio – Gov. Mike DeWine has ordered all U.S. and Ohio flags to be hoisted to honor and honor the memory of those killed in shooting at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday.
Authorities said 19 students and two adults were killed when a gunman entered Rob Elementary School and opened fire. Texas Public Security officials told the incident in detail, explaining how police smashed windows at the school to help people escape.
The suspected gunman, who was identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, was eventually killed by law enforcement. The shooting has shaken a small community of Uwalde, as well as a nation that is still trying to understand the recent deadly shootings at a California church and New York supermarket.
Devine’s announcement on Wednesday is in line with orders from President Joe Biden. Flags should remain lowered in all public buildings and venues across Ohio, though at sunset on Saturday.
