Eight people died and hundreds were injured after a crowd surge and stampede at NRG Park in Houston, Texas on Friday night, according to police.

Scott's Astroworld team disputes the crowd surge stories. Astroworld claims someone was going around injecting people with an unknown substance that caused sudden cardiac arrest.

Police Chief Troy Finner confirmed a security guard working for Astroworld felt a prick in his neck while he was trying to restrain a citizen, according to TMZ.

The guard reportedly fell unconscious and was revived with Narcan, an emergency drug administered by paramedics to reverse a suspected opioid overdose.


There are no other reports of people being pricked by needles at the concert.

However, there are a plethora of witness accounts of fans being crushed by a crowd surge at the front of the stage.

Travis Scott has a history of encouraging risky behaviors at his concerts.

In 2017, a Scott was sued by a fan who was seriously injured when the rapper urged people to jump off a balcony at a concert in New York.

The 23-year-old fan said Scott yelled at his security guards to bring him to the stage.

"They didn't put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around. Then they dropped me in front of the stage."

A Reddit user posted a video that shows an enraged Scott urging concertgoers to beat up a fan who stole one of his sneakers.

Scott can be head yelling "Get that MF, get him. You tried to take my shoe? F*** him up! F*** him up!"

He then ordered his security to escort the kid out of the venue before spitting at him.
