Suge Knight was shot six times at a party thrown by on-again, off-again Rihanna flame Chris Brown. The pre-VMA party at nightclub 10AK turned violent at approximately 1:30 a.m. Sunday, and police believe the shooting may have been gang related.
According to TMZ, Suge Knight was shot in the arm, stomach and "other places as well."
After the shooting, Suge Knight exited the nightclub under his own power and on his own two feet. Police spotted the injured entrepreneur outside the club and placed him inside a police cruiser until an ambulance arrived. Paramedics then loaded him into an ambulance and transported him to a local Los Angeles medical facility, Cedars-Sinai, which is a non-profit hospital and research institute.
Suge Knight underwent surgery for his multiple gunshot injuries. He was moved into the intensive care unit following the surgery, and he is expected to survive.
Another gunshot victim may not be so fortunate. Three people who suffered gunshot wounds in the incident were transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital for treatment. One of them is currently listed in critical condition, reported News.
Suge Knight is the founder of Death Row Records. He is also the CEO of Black Kapital Records. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the 49-year-old music mogul is worth an estimated $200,000, which is a paltry sum compared to others in the rap business. For example, pre-VMA party host Chris Brown is worth an estimated $30 million.
