COLUMBIA, SC (WBTW) – Governor Henry McMaster has ordered that flags on all state buildings be lowered to half-staff Wednesday.

The order is in effect from sunrise to sunset, and is as a tribute to fallen Marion County Deputy Jonathan David Price, who died in a collision while in the line of duty last week.

McMaster also requests that flags flown over buildings of political subdivisions of the state be blown in the same manner.
