Suge Knight has reportedly been involved in a fatal hit and run incident.
According to TMZ, the one time Death Row Records CEO got into a fight with two crew members on the set of an unnamed film project in Compton, Calif. on Thursday (January 29).
It is then thought that Knight got into his car, which struck and killed a bystander - before fleeing the scene.
It has been claimed that the victim is Terry Carter - thought to be Suge’s friend - while another man, actor Cle ‘Bone’ Sloane, sustained “non-life threatening injuries” after being hit by the hip-hip mogul’s vehicle.
Compton Police Department confirmed to The New York Post that the incident occurred around 3:00 p.m. PST.
Our US Team have contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and a Public Information Officer confirmed that there was a “traffic collision” in Compton area between a vehicle and two pedestrians — not one, as some outlets initially reported.
TMZ has since updated its report, with Suge's lawyer apparently arranging for his client's surrender to the Sheriff's Dept.
Cops have since found Knight’s abandoned truck, but there is still no word from Suge himself.
