CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead is calling on Wyoming citizens to observe a moment of silence and remembrance to honor the victims of last weeks' shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Mead and governors across the country are calling for the moment of silence on Friday at 9:30 a.m. in local time zones — the hour of the shooting last week in Connecticut.

Mead is also asking government buildings and places of worship to ring bells 26 times in honor of those who died at the school.
