ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) 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.
