GA Governor issues flag order for slain officer

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - Governor Nathan Deal announced Friday that state flags will be lowered to half-staff until sunset, December 11, in honor and memory of Officer Nicholas Ryan Smarr. Smarr was killed Wednesday in Americus as he responded to a domestic violence call.

An Executive Order lowering flags to half-staff will be issued once funeral arrangements are made for fallen Officer Jody Smith.
