President Biden on Tuesday ordered that the flags at the White House, federal buildings and military posts be flown at half-staff for the victims of a deadly shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
The White House issued the proclamation Tuesday evening, hours after news broke of the shooting, which left at least 14 dead. Biden ordered the flags be flown at half-staff through Saturday at the White House, public buildings, military installations, and embassies and consular offices abroad “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Biden, who the White House said was briefed on the shooting while flying back from a trip to Asia, is scheduled to deliver remarks on the mass shooting later Tuesday evening after returning.
“His prayers are with the families impacted by this awful event,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted.
The AP notes that the shooting was “the deadliest shooting at a U.S. grade school since the shocking attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago.”
His prayers are with the families impacted by this awful event, and he will speak this evening when he arrives back at the White House.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy (D) told his colleagues that it’s time to act after Texas elementary school shooting, and asked them to find common ground to pass laws to make mass shootings less likely.
He noted that communities like the one in Texas and, before that, Sandy Hook, are irrevocably changed by tragic shootings like these. He also noted that the shooting came just 10 days after a gunman killed 10 Black shoppers and workers at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
”What are we doing?,” Murphy asked. “There were more mass shootings than days in the year. Our kids are living in fear.”
