Mayor Kasim Reed Statement on the Tragedy in Chattanooga, Tennessee

July 22, 2015

On behalf of the City of Atlanta, I want to express my deepest sympathy for the four Marines and one sailor who lost their lives to a senseless act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families, and we offer our gratitude to the first responders who helped to save the lives of so many others. Out of respect for the victims of the shooting on July 16, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I hereby order that the flag of the United States be flown at half-staff at all City of Atlanta public buildings and grounds until sunset, July 30, 2015.
