PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Flags on public buildings across South Dakota are flying at half-staff as a sign of respect for the victims of the shooting at a social service facility in San Bernardino, California.

President Barack Obama has called for American flags to be lowered through Monday.

The U.S. flag is also being lowered to half-staff at the White House, federal buildings across the country, military installations, U.S. Navy ships, embassies and diplomatic missions.

The attack at the social service center for the disabled on Wednesday left 14 people dead. The rampage was the nation’s deadliest mass shooting since 2012, when 26 children and adults were slain in Newtown, Connecticut.
