Half-Staff flags
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday, Feb. 18, in honor of White Mountain Apache Police Officer David Kellywood.
Arizona businesses and residents are being invited to join in the tribute, Ducey's office said.

Kellywood was killed in the line of duty on Monday while responding to a report of gunshots fired south of Pinetop-Lakeside. Officer Kellywood joined the department nine months ago after graduating from the police academy. Born in McNary, Arizona, Officer Kellywood was a member of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.

“Arizona mourns the death of Officer David Kellywood of the White Mountain Apache Police Department,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “This heartbreaking loss is another reminder of the danger our law enforcement officers face every day to keep others safe. Our prayers are with Officer Kellywood’s wife, children and loved ones as well as the White Mountain Apache Tribe. In honor of Officer Kellywood’s life and service, I am ordering flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff.”
