Alabama lowers flags to honor fallen sheriff’s deputy
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has ordered all flags to be lowered to half-staff following the Tuesday death of a Monroe County sheriff’s deputy.
Deputy Julius Dailey was killed in a crash while responding to a burglary in progress call.
WSFA-TV reports Ivey announced the recognition for Dailey in a news release Wednesday, offering condolences to his 3-year-old daughter and to his family.
Authorities say Dailey reportedly lost control of his vehicle while responding to the burglary call.
The flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Sunday.
