Half-Staff in Honor of IRS Special Agent Patrick Bauer


Governor Katie Hobbs has ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half staff from sunrise to sunset Thursday, August 24, 2023 in honor of IRS Special Agent Patrick Bauer, who died after being shot during a training incident at a firing range last Thursday.   

“The loss of Special Agent Patrick Bauer is felt across the multiple agencies he dedicated his life and career to,” said Governor Katie Hobbs. “As a former Arizona National Guardsman, he served our state with honor and dignity, characteristics he continued to embody as a federal IRS agent. I want to extend my sincere condolences to his family, friends and community. His service will forever be remembered.” 

Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to join in this tribute.
