Flags in KY at Half-Staff for Fallen Officers
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - In accordance with a proclamation from the White House, Gov. Andy Beshear has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff until sunset on Wednesday.

Beshear's office says the move is a a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of United States Capitol Police Officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, as well as law enforcement in Kentucky and across the country.

Sicknick died Wednesday after being assaulted by a mob of violent rioters who broke into the U.S. Capitol. Liebengood died on Sunday after apparently taking his own life.

Beshear encourages individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the commonwealth to join in this tribute.
