more questions emerge over why it took so long for law enforcement to engage outside of rob elementary school the sounds of steps and laughter replaced by silence and these crosses representing the 19 students and two teachers shot and killed tuesday as the community grapples with grief survivors of tuesday's attack are sharing their harrowing stories the shooter shot through the window. and hurting my friend and my teacher we were running out of the doors cuz like two police cars were um covering our doors of the shooter was gonna come in and then they were just we just ran out of the room, i was praying thinking why is this happening? this is 11 year old maya. cerrillo who shared her brave story off-camera. she says the gunman came into her classroom said good night and then started shooting. he walked away. she smeared blood on herself and
6:01 pm
played dead to survive. many questions remain about why authorities didn't immediately go into the school when the gunman barricaded himself inside for nearly an hour the course it was not the right decision was the wrong decision period there's no no excuse for that. but again, i wasn't there, but i'm just telling you what we know. we believe there should have been an entry at that as soon as you can police. also said the gunmen used at least 100 rounds of ammunition during the attack the texas rangers are currently in charge of the investigation with support from at least. hundred agents from the fbi reporting here in uvalde, texas. i'm chris winn back to you. all right, chris. thank you. the nra's annual convention is underway in houston right now, texas, governor greg abbott delivered a taped message to attendees with a focus on the shooting in uvalde. there are thousands of laws on the books across the country that limit the owning or using a firearms. laws that have not stopped mad men from carrying out evil acts on innocent people and peaceful communities.
6:02 pm
earlier governor abbott spoke angrily about being given inaccurate accounts of how law enforcement responded on the day of the shooting i was misled. i am livid. and here's my expectation. my expectation is that a law enforcement leaders that are leading the investigations. which includes the texas rangers and the fbi? they get to the bottom. of every fact with absolute certainty governor of texas today now after the failed tactics and uvalde we contacted bay area experts about how we would respond ideally to a situation of this kind abc 7 news reporter loose pena spoke with alameda county sheriff greg ahern about the training his department goes through on a yearly basis. 40 minutes seems like it's a way too long of a time to allow that to go on. we sat down with alameda county sheriff, greg. aherns like this suspect is
6:03 pm
barricading himself inside a classroom. what would have been your response? well, we have breaching tools and we have ballistic shields and we have our patrol rifles and so you would use a combination of those you would breach the entrance. with the protection of the ballistic shield and fire at the suspect from behind the ballistic shield we teach and train them to know the area so they respond to that area the safest way they can without being detected by the suspect put rounds towards the suspect. so you distract the suspect from killing others in uvalde, texas officials admitted they did not implement. their plenty of officers to do whatever needed to be done with one. option is that the the incident commander inside believe they needed more equipment. and more officers to do a tactical breach at that point former fbi agent rick smith said
6:04 pm
uvalde's incident commander made a tactical error by misidentifying the threat they didn't have the luxury of time for that. they had an active shooter that that they thought changed to a barricaded situation. so they waited and it didn't it didn't change. it was still an active shooter loose pena a happening right now of vigil is underway in san francisco to remember the victims in uvalde and other recent mass shootings. we just got this video from the event which is being held at manny's in the mission. people were told to bring flowers and candles and to come together to grieve. photos of recent victims have all been posted including the 21 killed in uvalde on tuesday as well as the 10 people shot to death in buffalo at a supermarket two weeks ago and the victims of an attack on a church in southern california. meantime giants manager gabe kapler says he will not take the field for the national anthem going forward that is his response to the shooting in,
6:05 pm
texas. dappler says he will stay off the field during the anthem until he feels better about the direction of our country. the aftermath of the uvalde shooting the abc 7 news i-team is digging into two issues a deemed to be crucial and a crucial aspect of the nation's mass shooting epidemic debate access to guns and mental health care in the country i-team reporter stephanie. sierra is here to expose the gap stephanie that really exists across the country. that's right, dan and more than one fifth of the nation our analysis. there are at least twice as many gun dealers than mental health care providers and the data we obtained exposes a huge gap across the country. in uvalde, texas where a gunman massacred 19 innocent children and two teachers this week. there are more gun dealers than mental health providers. that's true for 70% of the county's across the state texas ranks the lowest in mental health investments in the country.
6:06 pm
it's dead zero dr. ronic triveties an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at stanford. she explains the 2022 state of mental health in america report rank. this last out of all 50 states and the district of columbia for overall access to mental health care. that's not the case in california. the state is one of seven across the country where every county has more mental health providers than gun dealers. abc 7's i-team data analysis of active federal licenses maintained by the bureau of alcohol tobacco firearms that explosives and the centers for medicare and medicaid services found san francisco county. has the highest rate of mental. providers compared to gun dealers across the nation. there's only one gun dealer in the county compared to more than 4,000 mental health providers. it doesn't surprise me in san francisco. we have always prioritized access to healthcare including mental health care.
6:07 pm
we also have prioritized reducing the number of guns in our city state senator. scott weiner passed a law that goes into effect this july that will expand access to mental health care for those uninsured requiring follow-up appointments be available every two weeks if needed one of the challenges people face is when people have insurance. sometimes they're able to get a first appointment with a therapist or other mental health professional, but then they can't get a second or follow up appointment for another couple months. the items analysis found of the top 15 counties with the highest rate of mental health providers. san francisco is followed by manhattan and brooklyn in new york the next california counties that come close are alameda the eighth highest and marin the 13th, august. meanwhile the top five areas in the free with the biggest gap from mental health providers are in the midwest and counties spanning, iowa, texas, missouri and indiana for example, warren
6:08 pm
county iowa has 23 times more gun dealers than mental health providers, but as dr. trivedi points out, i think the bigger challenges that we often tend to conflate this kind of mass shootings with a mental illness, and there's no mental illness around being a mass murderer or mass shooter. that is not a recognized psychological. conditions psychiatric condition now our analysis found 41 counties across the us with at least 10 times as many gun dealers as mental health care providers and most of them are in the midwest and the south for the i-team stephanie sierra abc 7 news. very interesting. all right, stephanie. thank you to find resources on topics including mental health and gun violence go to abc 7 action. we have a list of local groups that can help some you can reach simply by texting. today the san francisco police department revealed new details about a police shooting in the city's mission bay neighborhood two men died after an officer
