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.
