President Barack Obama will travel to Dallas early next week in the wake of the shootings that claimed the lives of five officers and wounded seven others.

Obama, who will appear in Dallas at the mayor’s request, is in Europe for a NATO meeting. He will visit Spain on Saturday and will then head back to Washington on Sunday night, cutting short his European trip by one day.

“The President has accepted an invitation from Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings to travel to Dallas early next week,” the White House said in a statement. “Later in the week, at the White House, the President will continue the work to bring people together to support our police officers and communities, and find common ground by discussing policy ideas for addressing the persistent racial disparities in our criminal justice system. We’ll have more details about next week’s activities as soon as they are available.”
