WASHINGTON -- President Obama will travel to Colorado on Sunday to meet with families of the victims of the Aurora movie theater shooting rampage, the White House announced Saturday.
He will also meet with local and state officials on his visit, which he is making ahead of a previously scheduled three-day trip to Western states for official and campaign events.
The president cut short a campaign trip in Florida on Friday after learning of the tragedy and returned to the White House for meetings with senior officials to discuss the situation.
A spokesman for Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said no final plans had been made for a memorial service honoring the victims of Friday's deadly rampage. Earlier Saturday, officials in Colorado said that the state’s congressional delegation would attend. It was not clear whether Obama would attend.
