ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's flag is flying at half-staff over the State House and at all Maryland Department of Natural Resources facilities to honor a former DNR secretary who died.
    
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley ordered the flag flown at half-staff Thursday and Friday from sunrise to sunset in honor of Torrey Brown, who died Sunday at age 77. Brown was the Secretary of the department from 1983 to 1994.
    
O'Malley also ordered Maryland's flag and the U.S. flag be flown at half-staff on all public buildings from sunrise to sunset Friday in honor of U.S. Navy Master-at-Arms 2nd Class Mark Mayo. Mayo was fatally shot March 24 aboard the USS Mahan in Norfolk by a civilian truck driver trying to get on board.
    
Mayo will be buried Friday at Arlington National Cemetery.
