A short time later, Obama began his visit with the family members at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, which treated 23 of the people injured in the mass shooting; 10 remain there, seven hurt critically.
The hospital is a short drive from the site of the shooting.
Obama was expected to make a statement to the press later Sunday night.
