Texas Gov. Greg Abbott gave an update Friday afternoon on the response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde that killed 19 children and two teachers.

The governor, who was originally scheduled to deliver a speech at the National Rifle Association's convention in Houston this weekend, has said he will now only give a video message to attendees.

Earlier Friday, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw provided updates into the shooting investigation. He said it was the "wrong decision" for responding authorities to wait around an hour to engage the gunman.
