Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at state and local buildings until sunset Friday to honor the victims of a mass shooting Sunday night in Las Vegas that killed at least 59 people and injured more than 500.

“Ann and I are praying for Las Vegas and all the innocent lives senselessly taken in this tragic attack,” Scott said in a prepared statement, referring to his wife, First Lady Ann Scott. “Our hearts go out to every family impacted by last night's shooting.”

The shooting, which happened during an outdoor music concert, was the deadliest mass shooting in the country's history.
