BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple is ordering state agencies to fly flags at half-staff to honor U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and a Fargo police officer who was killed in the line of duty recently.

Dalrymple says the U.S. and North Dakota flags will be lowered on the day of each man’s funeral. Scalia is to be buried Saturday. The service for Officer Jason Moszer will held on Monday at Scheels Arena in Fargo.

The 79-year-old Scalia was found dead Saturday at a resort ranch in Texas. Officials said he died of natural causes.

Moszer died a week ago of a gunshot wound during a standoff with a suspect at a house near downtown Fargo.

Dalrymple is encouraging North Dakota residents to lower their flags, too.
