The state capitol building of Utah, located in Salt Lake City, stands atop a hill overlooking the city. Known as the "Beehive State," Utah's three branches of government meet in this building, designed by Richard K.A. Kletting. Here the American flag and the state flag of Utah fly at half mast, in memory of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

Governor Spencer Cox has issued an order for all flags to be flown at half-staff at all state facilities.

The order is in recognition of Santaquin Police Sgt. Bill Hooser who died in the line of duty Sunday.

Hooser responded to a call over the weekend when a semi truck driver turned the wrong way on I-15 and hit his patrol car, killing the officer.

Flags are to be lowered until sunset Monday, May 13, the day of his funeral.
