Oh boy, this is bad…very bad. According to TMZ, shots rang out at 1OAK Nightclub in West Hollywood at around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Suge Knight was shot six times and taken to the hospital by ambulance. Sheriff’s deputies had guns drawn as club-goers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting.
Knight walked out of the club by himself but was spotted by a police officer and taken to a police car where he sat and awaited medical attention. He was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
Knight has undergone surgery and is currently in ICU. Luckily he is expected to recover.
Multiple sources tell TMZ that the producer was only one of three people who were shot. At least one person is in critical condition.
The night reportedly started with tension. An hour or so before the shots rang out, a fight broke out when rapper Game and his crew got into an alteration with security guards. Game eventually left when he couldn’t get in but his friends stayed behind.
Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri’chard and Apple de Ap all told TMZ that they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard four shots ring out inside the club.
According to TMZ the block is now hot because the cops are interested in a one particular common denominator about that party. That common thread would be the fact that Brown, Suge and Game all have Blood affiliations.
Eyewitnesses reported that Brown was throwing up gang signs before the shooting, and performing with a red bandana which is a notorious signal of Blood affiliation. Chris has been doing this for months though. This isn’t new for him.
Game too has been a known and proud member of the Bloods in the past. And one of the widest known facts about Knight is that he has long been affiliated with the Bloods. It’s been reported that several known gang members were surrounding Chris at the time of the shooting.
This whole scenario could prove to be big trouble for Brown because he’s still on probation from the Rihanna beating incident. He has only been out of jail for a few months now. MTV is making it crystal clear that this party was Chris Brown’s and not hosted by the network.
The Urban Daily will continue to update this story as more information becomes known.
