In honor of the rookie cop killed in the line of duty, Governor Jan Brewer has ordered that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset Sunday.  On Saturday afternoon, Flagstaff Police Officer Tyler Stewart was shot dead by a suspect involved in a domestic violence call.

Brewer’s office is encouraging individuals, businesses and other organizations to participate in this tribute.

In addition, the Flagstaff Police Department will be holding a candlelight vigil Sunday at 5:30 p.m. around the Officer Down Memorial Statue in honor of Stewart.
