Gov. John Hickenlooper has ordered that flags be returned to full-staff beginning Sunday, a little more than a week after a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 at an Aurora movie theater.

The governor ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff until further notice after the July 20 massacre.

The Denver Post reports flags will be lowered to half-staff Aug. 3 for 26-year-old shooting victim Jon Blunk's funeral in Reno, Nev., and again when 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan's funeral is scheduled.

Veronica was the youngest of the victims killed in the attack.

Hickenlooper's order affects public buildings across the state.
