Gov. Sandoval orders flags lowered for Colorado victims
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is ordering that flags be flown at half-staff at the state Capitol and all state buildings in honor of the victims of the Colorado movie theater shooting, which included a Nevada native.
Sandoval ordered that the flags be lowered until sunset Wednesday.
The shootings in Aurora during a packed midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" left 12 people dead and 58 others injured.
Former Reno resident Jonathan Blunk was among the dead. The 26-year-old was a father of two and Navy veteran.
He died in the shooting Friday after throwing himself in front of friend Jansen Young and saving her life.
