HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The governor has announced that United States and Connecticut be lowered to half-staff for the victims of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the flags should remain at half-staff until Monday.

Malloy’s announcement comes after a proclamation from President Barack Obama.

The shooters killed 14 people during a holiday party at a community center then died in a shootout with police about two hours later. In total, 21 people were injured in the shooting.
