Obama Meets with Colorado Shooting Victims and Families

| No Comments

On Sunday President Barack Obama met with victims and families of those killed in Friday's mass shooting in a Colorado movie theater, which killed 12 people and injured 58.

Obama visited with families at the University of Colorado hospital in Aurora, where 23 victims had been taken after the shooting and 10 remained Sunday, CBS News said.

Obama focused on the "lives and dreams of the fallen and the survivors" rather than the shooting suspect after emerging from visits with the families and victims, the Associated Press said.

"I also tried to assure them that this perpetrator has received a lot of attention, that attention will fade away. ... In the end... what will be remembered are the good people who were impacted by this tragedy," Obama said after one of the meetings, CBS News said.

"I know the president is in Colorado today," said Mitt Romney, the republican presidential nominee, to a group of supporters. "He's visiting with families and friends of the victims, which is the right thing for the president to be doing on this day -- appreciate that."
