President Joe Biden urged police departments to spend federal law-enforcement aid, saying it can help reduce gun violence “and intervene before it’s too late.”

Hours after his speech at an event for police officers killed in the line of duty, the White House said the president and first lady Jill Biden will visit Buffalo, New York, on Tuesday to grieve the victims of a “senseless and horrific mass shooting” that left 10 dead.
