CARSON CITY (KTNV) — Thursday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered flags to be lowered to half-staff in honor and remembrance of the victims of the shooting in San Jose, Calif., after an employee opened fire at a light-rail facility.

The governor’s executive order aligns with a Presidential Proclamation issued by President Joe Biden to lower United States flags until sunset on May 30.

Kathy and I, along with the entire State of Nevada, will continue to hold them and the San Jose community close in our hearts and in our prayers.”
