Uvalde, Texas experienced a tragic loss of life on May 24, 2022, when a teenager opened fire in a primary school, killing 19 fourth-graders and two teachers. Throughout the past year, ABC News’ Investigative Unit and “20/20” have been embedded in the community as part of the “Uvalde: 365” initiative, documenting the struggles of the families of the Robb Elementary massacre victims and survivors as they mourn their losses, demand accountability from the authorities, and start the difficult process of healing.

Caitlyne Gonzalez, 10, who travels across the country to fight for gun reform in the name of her friends who didn’t make it; Jazmin Cazares, who struggles to navigate her senior year of high school; and Felix Rubio, a deputy sheriff who resigned after seeing his daughter’s bedroom was too much for his surviving children to bear, are just a few of the individuals whose stories are highlighted in the documentary. The film also follows Arnie Reyes, the surviving teacher, as he struggles to overcome the trauma of losing 11 of his students.

In addition to new and exclusive interviews from those inside, previously unheard 911 calls, unreleased surveillance videos, and never-before-seen body camera footage and photographs, this “20/20” report provides an unprecedented and complete account of what transpired on the day of the shooting.
