President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden boarded Air Force One early on Sunday morning for a somber visit to Uvalde, Texas, after 19 children and two teachers were shot dead inside an elementary school classroom there last week. 

The commander-in-chief and his wife were both clad in black when they boarded the plane in an air field in Delaware, where the first couple regularly spend their weekends.

His visit comes as the small southwestern town is still reeling after an 18-year-old gunman walked into Robb Elementary School through an unlocked door last Tuesday, where he proceeded to barricade himself in a classroom for nearly an hour as police were outside and frightened parents begged them to break in and confront the shooter.

The teen was later killed by a Border Patrol officer.

Biden is expected to arrive in Uvalde at 11 a.m. local time.

He and Dr. Jill Biden will first visit the memorial site that was set up outside of the school to honor the victims.

They'll then attend services at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where late last week a special mass was held in honor of the 21 people killed.
