SPOKANE — Gov. Chris Gregoire has ordered that flags at state buildings be lowered to half-staff Monday in honor of a Spokane soldier who was killed in Afghanistan.

Jarrod A. Lallier was killed June 18 when people dressed as Afghan national police opened fire and also wounded eight other servicemen.

The 20-year-old graduated two years ago from Mead High School. He was serving with the 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division.
