Governor David Ige has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Oct. 31, 2018 to honor the victims of the recent tragedy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Hate crime charges have since been filed against the man who opened fire in a synagogue on Saturday, killing 11 people.

Gov. Ige said, “Words fail to express the sadness and injustice of yet another vicious mass shooting at a sacred place of worship. We stand together with all Pennsylvanians and send our Aloha.”
