LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has ordered that flags at state buildings and grounds be flown at half-staff Wednesday in honor of a Highway Patrol sergeant killed in the line of duty.
Sisolak said in a statement that he ordered the honor "as a mark of solemn respect and remembrance" for Sgt. Ben Jenkins whose funeral was scheduled Wednesday in Elko.
Jenkins was fatally shot on a remote road in northeast Nevada, leading to the arrest of John Leonard Dabritz who awaits trial on charges of murder and other crimes.
