LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

Gov. Rick Snyder joined President Barack Obama's call for flags to be lowered to half-staff to honor the victims of the Roseburg, Oregon shooting.

"These fatal shootings were a senseless act of violence that claimed the lives of nine innocent U.S. citizens," Snyder said. "The state of Michigan and I join the families of these victims as well as our country in mourning their loss." 

Obama ordered flags at half-staff through Oct. 6.
