TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie ordered flags in New Jersey to be flown at half-staff as a memorial to the U.S. service members fatally attacked last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Christie signed the executive order on Tuesday. The order states the U.S. and New Jersey flags will be flown at half-staff on Wednesday at all state buildings.

Christie's order comes after four Marines and a Navy sailor were shot and killed at two military facilities in Chattanooga on Thursday.

President Barack Obama also ordered on Tuesday the U.S. flag to be flown at half-staff across the country until Saturday.
