Suge Knight was one of three people shot during an MTV VMAs pre-party, hosted by Chris Brown, in West Hollywood early Sunday morning. According to TMZ, shots went off inside the 10AK nightclub at around 1:30 a.m., striking the Death Row co-founder in the stomach and arm. The site initially reported Suge was hit twice, but an update earlier this morning says he was shot six times.
Witnesses say the wounded rap mogul left the club on his own accord, only to be sat down by police and later rushed to hospital by ambulance. He is expected to make a recovery after coming out of surgery and being placed in ICU. TMZ obtained footage of the scenes both inside and outside the nightclub following the shooting, in which we see Suge sitting down in a police car before being wheeled into an ambulance on a stretcher.
UPDATE: The Family of Suge Knight released a statement to REVOLT TV:
“The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media. 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.”
