President Barack Obama will travel to Chicago at the end of this week to address gun violence and other issues after his State of the Union address.
A statement from the White House press secretary on Sunday says the president will be in Chicago on Friday for an event. He'll also be traveling to Asheville, N.C., and Atlanta in the coming days.
Over the weekend, first lady Michelle Obama attended the funeral of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton.
The teen's death has renewed the nation's debate over gun violence. Pendleton was a band majorette and honor student who was shot and killed on Jan. 29, just a few days after performing for events surrounding Obama's inauguration.
Police say Pendleton was an innocent victim in a gang-related shooting.
