5/22/20 Flag Half-Staff, West Lafayette Fire Station

The U.S. flag is at half-staff Friday afternoon in front of West Lafayette's fire station.

Indiana Gov. Eric J. Holcomb has directed flags in Indiana's government buildings to be flown at half-staff to honor U.S. Capitol police officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, and all Capitol officers and law enforcement.

Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on Wednesday, according to an announcement from the governor's office.

Holcomb also asks businesses and residents in Indiana to lower their flags to half-staff.

The request comes after Wednesday's riot on the U.S. Capitol complex that ultimately resulted in the death of the two officers.
