President Obama to travel to Dallas and deliver message on recent shootings

Barack Obama

DALLAS (AP) – President Barack Obama will travel to Dallas on Tuesday and deliver remarks at an interfaith memorial service.

The service will take place at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. The White House says Obama is making the trip at the invitation of Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings.

Five officers were killed and seven were wounded when a gunman opened fire on a protest march in Dallas on Thursday.

The attack occurred shortly after Obama had arrived for a NATO summit in Poland. He cut his visit to Spain short by a day and has spoken daily during the trip about the attacks, calling for police and protesters to “listen to each other.”
