Rap mogul shot at nightclub party

Knight

– Death Row Records founder and rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight was injured in an early morning shooting Sunday in a packed nightclub but was expected to survive, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant said.

Knight was one of three club patrons struck by gunfire around 1:30 a.m. at 1OAK on West Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, said Sgt. C. Tatar, watch commander at the Los Angeles County sheriff’s West Hollywood station.

Two other victims, a man and a woman, were also being treated at local hospitals and were expected to survive.

Authorities are still seeking a suspect and declined to release additional information, citing the ongoing investigation.

The shooting came just hours before MTV’s Video Music Awards, which are slated for Sunday evening in Inglewood.

R&B singer Chris Brown, who was co-hosting a party at the nightclub with Pia Mia, was also inside the club but not hit by the gunfire, Tatar said.

MTV said it had no affiliation or connection to the event.

Representatives for Brown and the party did not return a call for comment. Calls to the club rang unanswered.

Laura Coverson, a spokeswoman for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, said strict medical privacy laws prevented her from confirming reports that Knight was being treated there.

Knight has been shot before. In 2005, he was struck in the leg during an MTV awards pre-party in Miami Beach.
