PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — All across the City of Pittsburgh today, government buildings are flying the American flag at half-staff.

It comes following Friday’s attack on Capitol Police that killed Capitol Police Officer William Evans.

A city spokesperson confirmed for KDKA that the order to fly the flag at half staff for government buildings is directly from the White House and Governor Tom Wolf.

Governor Tom Wolf issued the order that all United States and commonwealth flags fly at half-staff on state facilities on Friday to honor the victims of Friday’s attack.

The United States flag will remain at half-staff until sunset on April 6, 2021.

Commonwealth flags have flown at half-staff for more than a year to remember the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic.
