American Flags and South Dakota Flags to fly at half-staff Thursday, August 11th in the state of South Dakota in honor of Rapid City Police Officer Nick Armstrong.
Armstrong died on Sunday, Aug.7, after being critically injured in the line of duty.
“Officer Armstrong’s death compounds this tragic and senseless shooting,” Governor Daugaard said. “These slain officers are grim reminders that those who serve and protect us work in a dangerous occupation and sometimes pay the ultimate price for our safety. My deepest sympathies go out to their families and friends.”
