Timelines questioned in Astroworld investigations

Police leading a criminal investigation into a deadly stampede at rapper Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival say their focus is on determining accurate timelines.

Eight people died in the crush during Scott's performance at Houston's NRG Park last Friday (November 5).

The city’s Police Chief Troy Finner said that the timelines of events being developed by investigators have shifted from what was initially understood when the probe began.

He declined to say how the timelines have changed.

Finner also said police were looking into rumors of a drug spiking incident involving a security guard at the festival.

Scores were injured when fans surged to the front in the sold-out crowd of 50,000 people.

Although he paused the music multiple times after spotting fans who needed medical attention, Scott completed his set.

More than a dozen lawsuits have been filed against Scott, as well as music promoters Live Nation and ScoreMore.
