Nevada Man Among Those Killed in Libya

(CARSON CITY, Nev.) -- Flags across the State of Nevada will fly at half-staff through Sunday, in honor of the Nevada resident who was among four Americans killed in an attack at a U.S. consulate in Libya earlier in the week.

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone S. Woods, of Henderson, Nev., was killed in the attack on Tuesday. In response, Governor Brian Sandoval has directed all state flags to fly at half-staff until sunset Sunday in honor of the four Americans killed.

"As a Navy SEAL, Tyrone bravely fought for our country and as a security officer in Libya, Tyrone made the ultimate sacrifice," Sandoval said in a statement. "A registered nurse and paramedic, Tyrone stepped forward when his country asked him to."
