Death Row Records founder Suge Knight has survived after being shot six times during a nightclub party in West Hollywood organised by Chris Brown.
The 49-year-old mogul is out of surgery, although he is still in ICU, but he is expected to recover, TMZ reports.
Knight walked out of the club following the shooting, police told TMZ. He was then put in an ambulance and taken to hospital.
Knight was one of three victims taken to LA’s Cedars Sinai Hospital after the incident at the 1OAK nightclub, TMZ reports.
One of the shooting victims is reportedly in a critical condition.
Knight was attending a party hosted by controversial singer Brown, who was
reportedly caught up in the shooting but not hurt.
An hour-and-a-half prior to the shootout, Game got into a fight with security guards after being denied entry and left – his mates stayed on, according to TMZ.
A divisive figure in hip-hop, Knight was accused by his former friend Snoop Dogg of being involved in the 1996 murder of troubled rapper Tupac Shakur.
He was also implicated in the shooting murder of rap legend Christopher “Biggie” Smalls, which was said to be a revenge killing for Shakur’s death.
Death Row Records was successfully auctioned to entertainment development company WIDEawake Entertainment Group, Inc. for $18 million in 2009 after filing for bankruptcy in 2006.
