Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Shortly after Tony Gwynn's death was announced, city officials issued statements mourning his passing.

Council member Todd Gloria reflected on what Gwynn meant to San Diego.

"Tony Gwynn was an outstanding ball player, a respected professional, a great family man and a phenomenal human being. Our city is better because of Tony Gwynn and he will be sorely, sorely missed," Gloria said.

Mayor Faulconer ordered all flags on city facilities be lowered to half-staff in honor of Gwynn. They'll remain that way through Tuesday.
