Governor Laura Kelly announced that she has signed an Executive Order allowing first responders who die in the line of duty to be honored with flags at half-staff.

The Executive Order was in honor of Overland Park Police Officer Mike Mosher, who was shot and killed in the line of duty on May 3.

A previous executive order did not include first responders.

She said flags will be flown at half-staff the day of Mosher's funeral, which hasn't been announced.

Mosher was a decorated veteran and leaves behind his wife and four children.
