TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sundown on Thursday, April 17 and Friday, April 18 in honor of three people killed in a shooting rampage over the weekend in Overland Park.

Dr. William Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson Reat Underwood were shot and killed at a Jewish community center on Sunday. Terri LaManno, 53, was shot and killed nearby a short time later.

"On behalf of the citizens of Kansas, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer and I offer our condolences to the families and friends of those whose lives were lost in this senseless act of violence," said Governor Brownback. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them."

The suspect in the shootings, 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., is jailed.


A private memorial service for 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood and his grandfather, 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon, will be at 3 p.m. Friday in the main sanctuary of United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan.

Visitation for 53-year-old Terri LaManno will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday at St. Peter's Church in Kansas City, Mo. Mass of Christian Burial will be at the church at 10 a.m. Thursday, with interment afterword.
