Gov. Whitmer Orders Flags be Lowered to Honor Victims of El Paso, Dayton Shootings

A nation shaken, grieving over two mass shootings just hours apart from one another.

Over the weekend 29 people were gunned down in two major cities.

Investigators in El Paso and Dayton are now piecing together more clues on the deadly shooting rampages.

In El Paso, investigators are calling it a case of domestic terrorism and have a man in custody.

He is accused of shooting and killing 20 people.

In Dayton, police shot and killed the shooter, but say he killed nine people in a matter of seconds.

U.S. and Michigan flags are lowered to honor the victims of the weekend mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer is also encouraging local governments, businesses and residents to do the same.

She is calling gun violence a public health crisis, saying something needs to be done to make sure guns do not end up in the hands of someone who wants to hurt themselves.
