OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has requested all state flags be flown at half-staff to honor the victims of a shooting rampage this week in San Bernardino, California, that left 14 people dead.

Ricketts’ announcement Thursday follows a proclamation from President Barack Obama to lower all U.S. flags.

The flags will also fly at half-staff in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which will be observed on Monday.

Flags will be flown at half-staff until midnight Monday.
