UPDATE: Suge Knight’s family gave an official statement to Revolt in the aftermath of his injury. According to Revolt, Chris Brown invited Knight to the party.
“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.”
Wherever Marion “Suge” Knight is, trouble never seems to be too far around the corner. Last night, the infamous former Death Row label owner was reportedly shot multiple times at a party taking place at 1Oak Nightclub in West Hollywood. The shooting reportedly happened early this morning around 1:30 am during a pre-VMA party which was hosted by Chris Brown. According to witnesses, four shots rang out and people started ducking. Clubgoers were met by police with drawn guns as they exited the venue with hands raised. Suge was reportedly hit six times in the stomach and arm but walked out under his own power, before being noticed by cops who called an ambulance.
Suge was taken to a nearby hospital where he underwent surgery and is currently in ICU but expected to recover. According to the report, two other unnamed persons were also injured by bullets during the shooting.
