COLUMBUS — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has ordered flags lowered to half-staff following a gunman's attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 people.

The governor's announcement came after Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood that also injured six people, including four police officers.

Kasich says "Our hearts are heavy for the victims of today's hate-filled attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, for their families and for all who have been affected."

The governor ordered all flags lowered at public buildings and grounds in the state to honor those who died in Pittsburgh.
