President Obama Will Attend The Memorial For Victums Of Mass Shooting
President Barack Obama will attend an interfaith memorial service Sunday in Newtown, Conn., the site of Friday's deadly elementary school shooting. Twenty-six people, including 20 children, were killed when a man opened fire inside the elementary school.
Hours after the shooting, a tearful President Obama said he grieved first as a father. In those remarks and later in his Saturday radio address, President Obama called for "meaningful action" to prevent such shootings, but did not say what it should be.
President Obama's visit to Newtown for an interfaith vigil would be the fourth time he has traveled to a city after a mass shooting.
