SALEM, Ore. — Governor Kate Brown has ordered that all the flags at Oregon public institutions be flown at half-staff until sunset on Nov. 10, 2018 — in honor of the victims of a shooting at the The Borderline country bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

"Waking up to news of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, I am heartbroken, once again, for those who have lost their loved ones," said Governor Brown. "Haven't we learned that nowhere in our country will be immune to gun violence until action is taken? Congress, please act now."

The White House has also issued a national flag-order, and the full presidential proclamation will be available here.
