Earlier this morning around 1:30 AM, the founder of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, was shot at 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood. The record producer was attending a party co-hosted by Chris Brown and Pia Mia to celebrate this evening’s MTV Video Music Awards. MTV has stated that they had no affiliation with the event.

An unidentified man and woman were also reported injured.

Law enforcement officials claim that Knight’s injuries are not life-threatening and he is expected to survive.

Last night’s shooting mirrors a similar incident in 2005 when Knight was shot in the leg at a party thrown by Kanye West in Miami Beach, also prior to that year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

No additional information has been released concerning the shooter or the state of the other two victims.
