Houston Police Issue Detailed Investigative Report Into 2021Astroworld Tragedy
Earlier today (July 28), the Houston Police Department issued a detailed report regarding the 2021 Astroworld tragedy during rapper Travis Scott’s soldout concert at NRG Park on November 6. Local ABC affiliate ABC-13 broke the news, referencing to a tweet from Houston PD from earlier today (July 28), which also included a link to the 1,266 Page document. Find the full report here.
The report presents the findings of the police department's investigation into the tragic Astroworld stampede, which resulted in the death of 10 individuals, including a 10-year-old boy, and caused injuries to thousands. Throughout the document, the police refer to several witness accounts describing their harrowing experiences during the crowd crush. Additionally, an interview with Scott reveals that while he was performing on stage, he received a message through his earpiece informing him to conclude the show due to the developing chaotic situation. However, he was not immediately informed about the full extent of the severity until later on.
The Houston Police Department conducted an investigation into the Astroworld stampede incident, which involved interviews with various individuals, including Drake, who was a guest performer at the concert on November 6. During the interview, Drake mentioned that due to his vantage point on stage and the bright lights, he found it difficult to notice any issues in the audience. He also revealed that he was focused on his foot placement due to recent knee surgery and that his earpiece blocked out much of the external noise, including any request to stop the show from the crowd.
One security guard named Marty Wallgren reported that he attempted to inform members of Scott's team backstage about the urgency to end the show while Drake was performing. He emphasized the seriousness of the situation, stating that the concert "needed to end at 10 no matter what." However, Drake informed the police that he did not receive any message to conclude the concert.
The report includes statements from various attendees who experienced the pressure of the surging crowd during the concert. Some recalled being tightly packed and witnessing people falling and being stepped on while Travis Scott was performing.
In recent news, it was reported that Travis Scott will not face criminal charges related to the Astroworld incident. The grand jury in Harris County, Texas, decided not to indict him, but both Travis Scott and event promoter Live Nation Entertainment are still facing multiple civil lawsuits over the event. The report mentions that certain parts have been redacted to address privacy concerns and comply with the law.
