"Jennie and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Casper community and the family and friends of Lt. Dundas," Gordon said in a news release. "This tragedy reminds us how important it is to acknowledge the emotional toll that working as a first responder can have.

"We have a responsibility to provide mental health support and resources to those serving and protecting Wyoming citizens."

The order only applies to the Wyoming state flag and only for the state capitol building and Natrona County. All other flags throughout Wyoming should remain at full staff.

A memorial service for Dundas is planned for 4 p.m., Monday, October 4 at the Ford Wyoming Center.
