ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Maryland flags are lowered at half staff today in honor of an off-duty state trooper who was shot and killed.
The Maryland Governor's office says state flags are being flown at half staff in honor of the slain state trooper until sundown the day of his funeral.
Gov. Martin O'Malley said Friday that police are working tirelessly to capture the suspect in the shooting of 24-year-old Trooper First Class Wesley W. Brown.
Brown was shot early Friday in Prince George's County after he escorted a disorderly customer from a restaurant where he was working security.
