The U.S. flag in front of Buffalo's City Hall was lowered to half-staff at noon Monday in response to the deadly shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
And the dome atop City Hall will remain dark Monday evening.
"The shooting in Las Vegas is heartbreaking," said Mayor Byron W. Brown in a written statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims, as well as with law enforcement who acted swiftly and courageously in tracking the alleged gunman. Never should people have to live in fear for their safety."
New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo also directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff from Monday until sunset on Friday, Oct. 6 to honor the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting.
