President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden will travel Friday to Charleston, South Carolina, to honor the victims of last week’s deadly shooting, the White House said Monday.

Mr. Obama will deliver the eulogy at the funeral for the late Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people shot and killed by gunman Dylan Storm Root. The shooting once again has touched off a nationwide debate about race relations and gun violence.

The funeral will be held inside the TD Arena at the College of Charleston, according to the Charleston Post and Courier.
