Governor Holcomb directs flags flown at half staff in Indiana

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) -- Governor Eric Holcomb is directing all flags across the Hoosier State to be lowered to half-staff to honor the victims involved in Monday's mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado.

The governor is asking business owners and residents to lower flags until sunset on Saturday, March 27.

Monday afternoon, a gunman walked into a grocery store in Boulder and shot ten people to death including a Boulder police officer.

A motive has not been released.

News outlets spoke with the man's brother who said the suspect had been dealing with mental problems since being bullied in high school.

Police say the gunman bought a high-powered assault rifle six days before the killings.

Investigators say the gunman was injured during a shootout with police, treated at a hospital and then sent to jail before being charged with ten counts of murder.
