The police chief investigating the Astroworld tragedy has pointed the finger at Travis Scott for not stopping his performance when it was clear there was an emergency situation.

Houston Police Chief Troy Finner gave an update on the investigation, during which he said the show should have been paused while the crowd surge was dealt with.



Finner told the media:

“Absolutely. Everybody at that event has a responsibility, starting from the artist… down.”

“At one point, there was an ambulance that was trying to make its way through the crowd. And he’s got, the artist has, command of that crowd.

“The artist, if he notices something that’s going on, he can certainly pause that performance, turn on the lights and say, ‘Hey, we’re not going to continue until this thing is resolved.'”

Finner also confirmed that initial suspicions that a security guard was pricked in the neck with a needle are not true, and that after speaking to the guard, it appears he was just struck on the head.


The police chief was also asked whether he can investigate the case ‘fairly’ after admitting to meeting with Scott twice before the concert.
