Gov. Charlie Baker has ordered flags at State and Municipal buildings around Massachusetts to be lowered to half-staff in honor and memory of the five military personnel killed in a terrorist attack in Tennessee on Thursday.
Flags at all Tewksbury municipal and school department buildings, as well as flags at the Tewksbury State Hospital were lowered Friday morning and will fly at half-staff until further notice.
In a statement released Friday, Gov. Baker said:
“The senseless violence that occurred in Tennessee is a terrible tragedy made worse by the fact that the brave individuals whose lives were taken answered the call to serve and protect our nation. Today, our prayers are with the wounded as we wish them a full recovery and our hearts are with the loved ones left behind by the heart breaking loss of four American patriots."
