Indianapolis – In accordance with a presidential proclamation issued this afternoon, Governor Mike Pence is directing flags at state facilities statewide be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims of the terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium. This directive overlaps a previous directive asking residents to lower their flags to honor the service and sacrifice of Howard County Sheriff’s Deputy Carl Koontz, who was killed in the line of duty. Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of Deputy Koontz’ funeral, March 29.

Governor Pence also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff to honor of the victims of the terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium.
