“Notorious former rap music mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight has been arrested on suspicion or murder after he allegedly ran over two men in his truck following an argument on a film set in Compton,” the Los Angeles Times reported this morning, citing a source close to the investigation.
One of the men who was run over died.
As we reported previously, Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, was believed to be involved in the incident Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant.
“Knight, 49, arrived at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood station with his attorney around 12:30 a.m. to be interviewed by homicide detectives as a person of interest, according to authorities and his lawyer,” The Times reports. “The interview concluded around 3:30 a.m., Knight’s attorney, James E. Blatt, told The Times.”
The truck incident reportedly followed an argument on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about the rap group N.W.A.
“About 20 minutes after the alleged argument, the victims were at Tam’s Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues, authorities said. Knight is believed to have followed the men in his truck and run them over in the parking lot,” The Times reports, citing Capt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives unit.
