PHOENIX – Arizona Governor Doug Ducey ordered flags to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, in honor of White Mountain Apache Police Officer David Kellywood, who was killed in the line of duty.

Born in McNary, Arizona, Officer Kellywood was a member of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.

“Arizona mourns the death of Officer David Kellywood of the White Mountain Apache Police Department,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “This heartbreaking loss is another reminder of the danger our law enforcement officers face every day to keep others safe. Our prayers are with Officer Kellywood’s wife, children and loved ones as well as the White Mountain Apache Tribe. In honor of Officer Kellywood’s life and service, I am ordering flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff.”
