OKLAHOMA CITY - Gov. Brad Henry has ordered all flags on state property to be flown at half-staff through Tuesday, November 11, to honor the victims of Thursday's deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas.

The executive order mirrors a directive by President Obama that all flags on federal property be flown at half-staff during the same time frame. 

Among the 12 victims of the Nov. 5 shooting was Army Spc. Jason Dean Hunt, a 22-year-old soldier from the town of Tipton. Gov. Henry has ordered flags to also be flown at half-staff on the day of Spc. Hunt's funeral. 

Funeral arrangements for the Tillman County native are still pending.

"On behalf of all Oklahomans, my thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of J.D. Hunt," the Governor said.

"Like all Americans, we grieve for all the victims of that horrific shooting, but this tragedy hits especially close to home in light of this young man's death."
