Suge Knight shot multiple times in Hollywood nightclub
Suge Knight, the onetime Death Row Records CEO, was reportedly shot multiple times early Sunday morning (August 24) at West Hollywood nightspot 1 Oak. The imposing former label boss apparently was able to walk out of the unofficial pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown but was led to an ambulance by police, according to TMZ.
Details are few but the site broke the news, reporting that four shots were fired around 1:30 a.m. PT inside 1 OAK’s Los Angeles outpost on the Sunset Strip. In a 61-second video obtained by the website, a man resembling the exec (born Marion Knight Jr.) is seen being wheeled out on a stretcher by emergency workers; a number of police vehicles are on the scene. Knight’s family and sources close to TMZ seem to confirm his injuries were not fatal and that he was undergoing surgery in the pre-dawn hours.
At 9 p.m. PT on Saturday, Brown — an MTV VMA nominee at tonight’s show — posted a promo for the 1 OAK bash on his Instagram, adding the anticipatory caption, “We bout to turn the [f--k] up!!!!” But by Sunday morning, Brown had taken to Twitter to vent about the aftermath of the shooting, writing, “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullsh–!!!”
