Suge Knight a Suspect in Compton Hit and Run

Former music mogul Suge Knight is suspected of running over two men after an argument in Compton. The confrontation between Suge Knight and two unidentified men took place at 3:00 p.m. on January 29, 2015, on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about the group N.W.A.

Witnesses says that about 20 minutes after the alleged argument, the victims were at Tam’s Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues. It is believed that Suge Knight followed the men in his truck, hit them, then backed over them in the parking lot.

One of the victims suffered undisclosed injuries, and the other died. The incident is being investigated as a homicide rather than a traffic accident because deaths caused by vehicles are considered homicides when it is determined the driver intentionally used the vehicle as a weapon.

Suge Knight’s lawyer stated that Knight plans to turn himself in to authorities and that “we are confident that once the investigation is completed, he will be totally exonerated.”
