PHOENIX (AP) -- Gov. Jan Brewer says flags on all state buildings around Arizona will be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims of the Navy Yard shooting in Washington, D.C.

Brewer says flags will remain lowered until sunset on Sept. 20.

She made the announcement Monday in accordance with a proclamation from President Barack Obama.

A former Navy man opened fire Monday morning inside a building at the heavily secured Washington Navy Yard. Thirteen people were killed, including the gunman.
