WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama will travel to Colorado on Sunday to visit with victims of the movie theater shooting and their families.  

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer announced plans for the trip on Saturday night. Aides say the trip will also include meetings with state and local officials.  

In his weekly radio address, Obama called for prayer and reflection on the shooting rampage in Aurora, Colo., which claimed 12 lives.

He urged Americans to embrace the families who lost loved ones in Aurora and to "let them know we will be there for them as a nation."
