Flags to be flown at half-staff Monday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Governor Kathy Hochul announced that flags on state buildings will be flown at half-staff on Monday, May 16 in honor of the victims of the horrific shooting at Tops Supermarket in Buffalo. Flags should be lowered to half-staff at sunrise on May 16 and should remain lowered until all of the victims are laid to rest.

"The violence we witnessed at the hands of this white supremacist is sickening, unacceptable and it must stop here," Gov. Hochul said. "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us, and we must confront white supremacy head-on. My heart is with our neighbors in Buffalo, the victims and their families—their legacy will live on."
