Suge Knight reportedly ran over two bystanders with his car on the set of a film project in Compton, killing one. TMZ reports that the victim that was killed is Terry Carter, a friend of Suge Knight. The second victim was actor Cle “Bone” Sloan who suffered non-life threatening injuries. There was reportedly a passenger in Suge’s car. Suge Knight fled the scene shortly after.
Witnesses told TMZ that Knight got into an altercation with two crew members, who allegedly instigated the fight. Due to health concerns—he passed out recently and was sent to the hospital due to a blood clot in his lung—the former CEO of Death Row Records got into his car to leave and subsequently ran over the victims. The set Knight was reportedly on is believed to be the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The Game, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre was there. Earlier in the day, Game shared two images on his Instagram. The first was just the words “straight outta Compton” the second was a picture of himself with Dre and Cube.
Suge Knight’s life has been a roller coaster for a while now. First, he was shot several times at Chris Brown’s pre-VMA party. He faced robbery charges after his run-in with a photographer and surrendered to police back in November 2014. The judge was sympathetic to Suge and even went far enough to say his actions were justified. Just recently the West Coast native’s name came up during an investigation by the Nevada Gaming Control Board into alleged extortion payments by nightlife magnate Sam Nazarian.
