In Honor of Tucson Victims, L.A. Flags at Half-Staff on Monday
The City of Los Angeles will join New York and other locales on Monday in lowering their flags to half-staff. Flags will be brought down as a tribute to the victims of Saturday's Tucson shooting.
City Council president Eric Garcetti confirmed earlier tonight via Twitter exchange with Sheigh Crabtree that L.A. would participate in the tribute.
The tragedy, of course, had an L.A. connection: Nine-year-old Christina Green, who died in the aftermath, was the daughter of Dodgers scout John Green.
