Suge Knight has underwent surgery after being shot six times at West Hollywood’s 10AK nightclub early Sunday morning.
Knight was at the club for a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown. According to TMZ, Knight was hit in the arm and stomach and is one of three people shot for unknown reasons when the party turned violent. He was able to leave the venue on his power before being loaded into an ambulance. The assailants are still at large.
Reports from eyewitnesses indicate that an hour and a half before the shooting, rapper Game and his entourage got into a scuffle with security guards over entry into the party. Game is said to have left while members of his entourage remained. At press time, none of them have been identified as potential suspects.
In 2005, Knight was shot in the leg at another VMAs pre-party. Knight would later sue the party’s host, Kanye West, for damages that included a lost earring. The two would settle out of court in 2011 for an undisclosed sum.
At press time, Knight has not released a statement on today’s shooting.
This better be the last VMA party that Suge attends. With that said, the former Death Row CEO’s luck doesn’t appear to have run out. For a man his size, it’s remarkable that he’s survived three confirmed shootings (Tupac’s murder, Kanye party and now Chris Brown) in the last 18 years.
From the reports, it already sounds like the media is implying Game’s camp might be involved. However, you never know how many people in that venue had gang ties or an ax to grind with Suge. For example, Chris Brown himself is known to associate with Bloods. And it’s not like Knight hasn’t made a considerable amount of enemies in the last two decades.
At 49 years old, how much more can take Knight take? BeatsBoxingMayhem will continue following this story as it develops.
