Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Monday directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff until sunset on October 6, in conjunction with a federal proclamation, to honor the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

“Once again the nation mourns in the wake of yet another senseless and horrific mass shooting,” Cuomo said. “New York stands with Las Vegas in the aftermath of this heinous and vile act of gun violence and my heart aches for its victims and their loved ones on this darkest of days.”
