"Kentucky joins our nation in mourning the innocent lives lost in the senseless violence this week in South Florida", said Gov. Bevin.

Walker's order follows a directive from the White House to lower all United States flags to half-staff.

Businesses and residents can join IN government offices IN lowering flags to half-staff until sunset on February 19.
