Corbett orders flags at half-staff for slain Freemansburg officer

    Flags in Pennsylvania will fly at half-staff until Freemansburg police officer Robert Allen Lasso is buried.

    Lasso died last night while responding to a domestic dispute call in the borough outside of Allentown. The 31-year-old husband and father of two died of a gunshot wound.

    Flags at the Capitol and in Northampton County will fly low until Lasso’s interment.
