Houston, Texas – Police announced that during their investigation of eight deaths at the Astroworld Fest over the weekend that they have confirmed the initial rumors that someone was injecting drugs into at least one victim just prior to the stampede.
Houston Chief of Police Troy Finner made the claim at a press conference, saying that a crazed man injected at least one person with opioids during the chaos according to the Daily Mail.
“One of the narratives was that some individual was injecting other people with drugs. We do have a report of a security officer, according to the medical staff that was out and treated him last night,” Houston Chief of Police Troy Finner said at Saturday’s conference.
“He was reaching over to restrain or grab a citizen and he felt a prick in his neck.”
“He went unconscious, they administered Narcan. He was revived, and medical staff did notice a prick similar to a prick you would get if somebody was trying to inject,” Finner said.
