7:07 am
following. >> that side of this very human side of this story will. >> very personal side. i mean, i'm seeing some teachers at this particular school show up as well. so it's not just the parents. of course, the teachers are terrified. oftentimes they are the front line of defense. and we just heard some stories about some teachers sacrificing their lives to protect their kids this particular school. you can see the flag at half-staff and it's going to be not just here but across the country all the way through saturday as the nation once again remembers victims of another mass shooting. this time, obviously involves kids and teachers. so it it's personal to the school districts and the teachers. so take a look at your screen. there are a lot of people sending thoughts out. but the contra costa county sheriff's department sending more than thoughts. they're sending deputies as well. so this is what they tweeted out late last night may say on behalf of the contra costa sheriff's office,
7:08 am
our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the uvalde texas school shooting victims. our thoughts are also with the community and first responders. although there are no known threats in contra costa sheriff's office jurisdiction, i have ordered additional patrols all around our schools. so the key word is patrols. so they're not going to be stationed right in front of the school. not all the time. sometimes they'll stop. they'll walk around. but there's so many schools in contra costa county that they will be doing patrols. they will show a heavier presence. >> i also can tell you a lot of teachers, administrators as standard practice these days whenever they're free, there will also be in front there. also walk the hallways just to make sure that everybody is safe and just a reminder, there is no credible threat to any schools in contra costa county or the bay area to keep in mind, we woke up yesterday. there was also no credible threat to rob elementary, which is why i probably will speak for all parents out there. we're all terrified

7:10 am
other purpose than to identify the attacker. meaning police can not use the victim's dna from a rape kit to later connect them to another crime. this bill was put together by senator scott wiener and assemblymember phil ting san francisco district attorney chesa boudin has sponsored this bill along with another organization. this bill came about after it was discovered in san francisco that assault survivors, dna was being used against them and other unrelated crimes. the assault victims act would stop this from happening across the state. sen wiener says it's already hard enough for survivors to come forward and undergo these invasive rape kits. so he says the last thing they need is to have fear that that this would be used against them in the future. assaults are significantly underreported, fewer than a quarter of survivors come forward to police of those survivors. only a small percentage undergo that dna could collection. now there's already a federal law prohibiting the inclusion of
7:11 am
victims, dna, the national tea in a system. but there's no california state law to prohibit victim's dna from being entered into local law enforcement agencies. databases. now, this legislation would remedy that and so far it's received nothing but bipartisan support. i'm sarah stinson reporting live in the newsroom. back to you. >> thank you very much, sara. time now, 7.11 and still ahead on the ground for morning news here, we are going into memorial day weekend. a lot of people are going to be filling are up and boy, is it costing you? we're going to tell you what the president is trying to do to bring gas prices down. >> and today is going to be the last of our hot get through today. big relief in sight at the coastline today. another comfortable one enjoyed at the coast because it's your last sunny day before somebody gets here tomorrow, inland areas back to the 90's, even triple digit or 2 before we really cool down thursday. your forecast ahead. >> and before you hit the road on this wednesday morning, we are seeing a few delays out there. we'll tell you about
