Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has followed up on a proclamation by President Biden with an order to fly U.S. and Wyoming flags at half staff through Sunday, May 30.

The proclamation was in response to a shooting at a San Jose, California rail yard in which an employee killed 8 people and wounded several others before taking his own life.
