(CBS News) President Obama will stop in Aurora, Colo., Sunday afternoon to meet with local officials and the families of victims of Friday's mass shooting there.

The trip, announced late Saturday night, will be a brief stopover; he's expected to be in Colorado for only a couple of hours.

His visit comes after canceling two campaign events in Florida Friday, after news broke about the shooting. "There are going to be other days for politics," Mr. Obama said in Ft. Myers, Florida, before cutting short his campaign stop. "This, I think, is a day for prayer and reflection."

In his weekly address to the nation Saturday, he said, "the federal government stands ready to do everything necessary to bring whoever's responsible for this heinous crime to justice. We will take every step possible to ensure the safety of all our people. And we will stand by our neighbors in Colorado during this extraordinarily difficult time."
