TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff on Thursday and Friday to honor three people shot to death at two Jewish sites in Overland Park.

Dr. William Corporon and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, were shot and killed Sunday outside of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. A third victim, Terri Lamanno, was shot moments later at the Village Shalom, a Jewish retirement complex.

Memorial services for the three victims are scheduled on Thursday and Friday.

A suspect, 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, faces a state charge of capital murder for the deaths Corporon and Underwood and another count of first-degree premeditated murder for the death Lamanno. Federal prosecutors are gathering evidence to determine if other charges will be filed.
