Suge Knight Being Investigated in Fatal Hit-and-Run on Compton Video Set

A video shoot in Compton turned deadly today.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is investigating the possible involvement of Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight in a fatal traffic accident Thursday afternoon, NBC News reports.

No further details have been released, but law enforcement sources told NBC that they had heard Knight was either a passenger or the driver of a car involved in the incident in question.

According to TMZ, who first reported the news, Knight was visiting the set where The Game, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre were shooting a commercial for Game's Documentary 2 when Knight supposedly got into a confrontation with a crew member.

TMZ was told that Knight then got behind the wheel, put his car in reverse and hit a bystander, after which he left the scene.

The 49-year-old has had his fair share of run-ins with the law recently.

Knight was one of three people wounded during an early morning shooting at West Hollywood nightclub 1Oak in August during a pre-MTV Video Music Awards party hosted by Chris Brown. He was treated for his injury at a hospital, where he underwent surgery. It was unclear if Suge was the target.

Meanwhile, in October, Knight and comedian Micah "Katt" Williams were arrested and charged with robbery for allegedly stealing a paparazzo's camera outside a Beverly Hills studio. Knight pleaded not guilty to robbery and was ordered into custody in lieu of $500,000 bail.
