FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has ordered U.S. and state flags to be flown at half-staff at all state and federal buildings on Monday in honor of a Fargo police officer killed in the line of duty.

Officer Jason Moszer died a week ago of a gunshot wound during a standoff with a suspect at a house near downtown Fargo. His funeral is scheduled for Monday.

Moszer served in the Minnesota National Guard as a combat medic. At the direction of the governor, Minnesota flies its flags at half-staff on the day of interment following the death of a Minnesotan killed in the line of duty.

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple issued a similar order and is encouraging all North Dakota residents to lower their flags.
