Flags lowered to honor slain officers

— U.S. flags at all state and federal offices are at half-mast to honor the five officers killed yesterday by a sniper in Dallas.

President Barack Obama issued the proclamation today. Gov. Jay Inslee followed suit in ordering all flags to be lowered.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Tuesday.
