MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Gov. Kay Ivey has ordered all flags to be lowered to half-staff following the Tuesday death of a Monroe County sheriff’s deputy.

Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy Julius Dailey was killed in a crash while responding to a burglary in progress call.

“Let us remember the service and life of Deputy Daily,” Ivey said in a release. “We offer our deepest thoughts and prayers to his three-year-old daughter and loved ones.”

The flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Sunday.
