Death Row Records founder Suge Knight is undergoing surgery after being shot twice – once in the arm and stomach – during a nightclub party in West Hollywood.
Knight walked out of the club following the shooting, police told TMZ. He was then put in an ambulance and taken to hospital.
The 49-year-old rap mogul 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 Chris 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.
