BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple has ordered that flags on state property be flown at half-staff to honor the five service members killed last week in Tennessee.

Dalrymple’s order comes at the request of President Barack Obama. The flags will remain at half-staff until sunset Saturday.

Dalrymple says the shooting that occurred Thursday at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is “an attack on the very principles we hold dear in this country.”

Four Marines and a U.S. Navy sailor were killed in the attacks that authorities have blamed on a 24-year-old Kuwait-born man.
