HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut's governor ordered flags to half-staff on Thursday in accordance with a presidential proclamation to honor the victims of a school shooting in Florida.

Gov. Dannel Malloy said U.S. and state flags in Connecticut will fly at half-staff starting immediately until sunset on Monday.

Since no flag should fly higher than the U.S. flag, all other flags, including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise, should also be lowered during the same duration of time.

At least 17 people were killed during a shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.

Malloy posted a tweet about the proclamation:
