The FBI has joined with the Houston Police Department to investigate the circumstances that led to the deadly mob rush at Travis Scottit is Astromonde Festival returns in November.

“Houston Police Detectives have already reviewed countless hours of video evidence as part of our ongoing investigation into the Astroworld event,” HPD wrote on Twitter Friday, January 14. “To ensure that we have captured all of the evidence for a full investigation, we have partnered with the Federal Bureau of Investigation for additional technical assistance. The FBI has established a website where the public can download all video footage taken from the concert venue.

Specifically, the FBI is looking for footage taken during Scott’s headlining performance at the festival on Nov. 5. Photos and videos can be uploaded here.

The HPD said it was still investigating the tragedy, in which ten participants were killed as a result of “compression asphyxia” according to a medical examiner.

News of the FBI’s involvement follows last month’s announcement that Congress would begin to investigate the role of Live Nation in the festival’s security protocols. A slew of trial were filed against Live Nation, Scott, and other festival-affiliated entities, although the rapper started dismiss them.
