WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will speak from the White House briefing room about the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

The president's comments will be at 3:15 EST Friday. They will be his first on the incident, which has left at least 27 people dead, including 18 children.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said that mass shootings "weigh heavily" on Obama as the president and as a father. Carney said that Friday was not the day to talk about gun control, however.

Obama was not expected to take questions from the media.
