COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has ordered flags to be lowered at half-staff on all public buildings across the state on Saturday after the death of FBI Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger, who was gunned down this week in Florida.

Schwartzenberger was born in Pueblo and graduated from Pueblo South High School in 1996. She later attended Colorado State University.

Schwartzenberger is survived by her husband and two children.
