UPDATE: Knight is out of surgery and remains hospitalized in recovery. His family claims he was shot six times. Police are still searching for a suspect amid reports that the incident may have been gang-related.
Suge Knight was shot twice — and is currently in surgery — after a pre-VMAs party hosted by Chris Brown turned violent early Sunday morning.
Knight, and other celebrities including Tyson Beckford and Apple de Ap, were partying at 10ak in West Hollywood when shots rang out around 1:30 a.m.
According to TMZ, the music mogul was hit in the arm and stomach, and is currently in surgery to treat the wounds.
Attendees were forced to exit the venue with their arms raised as police stood outside with guns drawn.
The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department confirms to Gossip Cop that three people were shot at the event, but could not confirm the identities of any of the victims.
All were transported to the hospital, and are expected to survive.
We’re told police are still currently on the crime scene conducting an investigation.
A rep for the VMAs tells us the bash was NOT an official, MTV-sanctioned event.
Gossip Cop will have updates.
