Suge Knight Shot Multiple Times, Family Releases Statement

UPDATE #3: Marion Suge Knight was reportedly taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery after being shot multiple times. Law enforcement officials are now looking into gang rivalry as possible motive. His family has released a statement.

Suge Knight was shot two times at approximately 1:30am early today (August 24) at 1-OAK, a West Hollywood, California nightclub.

Knight was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery, according to TMZ, which cites eyewitnesses and Knight's family members as sources.

Witnesses at the Chris Brown-hosted event, including model Tyson Beckford and Black Eyed Peas’ Apple de Ap, say they heard four gun shots in the club.

Knight, best known for his work as Death Row Records CEO, was able to walk out of the club on his own, the report says, but police officers helped him into an ambulance.

Knight was one of three people who were shot, according to the outlet. At least one of the alleged victims is in critical condition. TMZ also reports that sheriff’s deputies “had guns drawn as club goers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting.”

Game was reportedly involved in an altercation with security at the club earlier in the evening. It is unclear if the two incidents are related.

Videos regarding this incident are below.

UPDATE #2: Law enforcement officials are looking into gang rivalry as a motive for the shooting, TMZ says. The site notes Blood affiliations that Chris Brown, Game and Suge Knight have in its article. The site also says Brown was throwing up gang signs and wearing a red bandanna during the event.

UPDATE #3: Suge Knight's family has released a statement about the shooting, according to REVOLT.

"The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media," the statement reads. "Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he's human. He's done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that."

    To all those claiming Sug'ar' is a real nigga, you are correct but he's no real Black man and I stressed the man. Dealing with a bucnk of punk ass gangbangers does not make you tough. Fuck outta here. This dude was exposed by Monster Kody way back because money was crying about shower time. Fuck outta here, you are in jail crying about shower time? p.s. That barber that knocked him was pussy right? Since he did what most of these bitch ass rappers that lame punked out over the years. Ask yourselves (that involves the process of thinking and most of y'all pussies do not have that capacity), why he never tried a Bumpy Knuckles, a Big Pun (RIP) anyone from Cypress Hill, yeah...
    • Omfg your a dumb faggot
      ................*yawns* Oh stfu faggot. Your obviously just a hater. Sure he's not a very nice guy, who gives a shit. At least he is a real OG and If you were from LA you would know he still holds alotta clout regardless of bankruptcy or beefs with your idol rappers. And he never said shit to Bumpy or any of dudes u mentioned because they aint fo shit to him, he's not picking random fights with just anyone for no reason you fucking retard.

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, ================== WWW.MUMJOB.COM ==================
