Governor Kim Reynolds is ordering all flags in Iowa to fly at half-staff in honor and remembrance of the Highland Park victims.
A gunman attacked an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago on Monday, killing at least seven people. The suspect used a rifle to spray bullets from atop a commercial building into a crowd that had gathered for the parade. More than 30 people were wounded.
The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Biden’s proclamation to lower all United States flags to half-staff through sunset Saturday.
