Flags at half-staff in San Diego to honor victims in Washington Navy Yard shooting

SAN DIEGO - Interim Mayor Todd Gloria Tuesday ordered flags at city of San Diego facilities to be flown at half-staff to honor victims gunned down at the Washington Navy Yard.

"Innocent lives of public servants were lost yesterday, and San Diegans offer our respect, thoughts, and prayers to the families and friends of the victims," Gloria said. 

A dozen civilian contractors at the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C., were killed by former Navy reservist Aaron Alexis before he was fatally wounded.

City flags will remain lowered until Friday at sunset.
