"State and American flags on public property will fly at half-staff from sunrise on October 2 until sunset on October 4, to mourn the loss of Brookhaven PD Officers James White and Zach Moak and MHP Trooper Josh Smith," the governor said in a Tweet. "Please continue to pray for the families of these men."
