HOUSTON – The Houston Police Department was forced to increase safety after several people were injured in an onslaught on Saturday morning at Astroworld Fest.
At 10:23 am, the Houston Fire Department responded to reports of an injury at McNee Road 1100 near the NRG Park.
According to the police, three people suffered minor injuries as they attempted to enter the Astroworld Festival. Paramedics transported the injured persons to a nearby hospital, officials said.
