(AP) — Authorities have released the names of the eight people who died at a Houston music festival over the weekend.

The victims whose names were released Monday were between the ages of 14 and 27 and came from Texas, Illinois and Washington.

Investigators are reviewing safety procedures and videos, as well as interviewing witnesses, to determine what went wrong Friday when the crowd rushed the stage during a performance by the rapper Travis Scott at the sold-out Astroworld festival.

Authorities say it could be several weeks before the causes of death are released. Hundreds more people were injured in the melee.
