President Obama will attend a vigil Sunday night in Newtown in memory of the 20 students and six adults killed Friday at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, officials said.

Obama was expected to meet privately with families of the victims, then attend the vigil.

The shooting is the second-worst mass killing at a U.S. school after the Virginia Tech assault that claimed 32 victims.
