Suge Knight has allegedly killed a man after running him over with his car while he was on set of a movie project in Compton, California.
According to TMZ, the former Death Row head got into a fight with two other crew members on the set, when he got into his car and allegedly hit a bystander while backing up. The film project Straight Outta Compton – about N.W.A. – also involved Game, Ice Cube, and Dr. Dre.
The site reports:
We’re told a fight broke out between Suge and 2 crew members. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a bystander.
It’s unclear at this point if the victim was connected to the film project.
Sources connected with Suge tell TMZ … the 2 men who fought Suge were the instigators. Our sources say Suge was scared because he’s in frail health — in addition to being shot 6 times last summer, he recently almost died from a blood clot.
The site also reports that the victim is a friend of Suge’s named Terry Carter, according to sources, and that there was a passenger in the car with Suge at the time.
We will keep you updated with more details.
