The president is scheduled to attend a 7 p.m. interfaith vigil to meet the families of those killed in Friday's school shooting and to thank first responders.

 

President Barack Obama is scheduled to travel to Newtown to meet the families of victims killed in Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and to thank first responders, according to a press release issued by the White House.

"The President will also speak at an interfaith vigil for families of the victims as well as families from Sandy Hook Elementary School scheduled for 7 p.m.," the press release said. "More details will be released as they are available."

The president's visit will come as many town's — including Durham and Middlefield — hold similar vigils for the victims.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting began at about 9:30 a.m. Friday. In all, 27 people were killed, police said, including 20 children. Among the adults killed were the school’s beloved principal and psychologist.

On Saturday, investigators released the names of the victims.
