The President is cutting short a trip in Europe to speak at the Memorial Service being held for the five fallen officers in Thursday’s shooting. He will speak at the Memorial, along with former President George W. Bush. The service will be held at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in the Downtown Arts District and will also be attended by Vice President Joe Biden and former First Lady Laura Bush.
President Obama is also scheduled to meet with the families of the officers slain by the bullets fired by Micah X. Johnson. If you travel in the area, be aware that there will be street closures to accommodate the motorcade.
