ALBANY, N.Y. — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has directed that flags on all state government buildings be lowered to half-staff to honor victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The Democrat says the directive is in effect from Tuesday through sunset Friday in conjunction with a federal proclamation.

Cuomo called the Nevada killings “yet another senseless and horrific mass shooting” and a “heinous and vile act of gun violence.”

The governor said he has directed additional security measures around New York state as a precaution, but didn’t release details.

Police in Las Vegas say 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock opened fire Sunday night on the crowd at a country music concert from a hotel room, killing 58 and wounding more than 500.
