TMZ reports that Knight showed up on the set of a movie where Ice Cube and Dr. Dre were with a man named Terry Carter. Security asked Suge to leave and a fight broke out between Knight and two other men. Knight hopped back in his car, gunned it in reverse and hit Carter, who was trying to get to the passenger side of the car.
Knight’s car ran over Carter, but instead of stopping, the music executive fled the scene. Two other men were also hit. One is identified as Cle “Bone” Sloane. The third victim’s name hasn’t been released.
Carter died at the scene from his injuries. Sloane and the other victim were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Sloane is a well known former member of the Athens Park Bloods. He’s appeared in the movies Training Day, Broklyn’s Finest and Tears of the Sun. He also directed the 2005 documentary Bastards of the Party.
It’s not known what movie was being filmed, but both Cube and Dre have been heavily involved in the upcoming NWA biopic, which has been filming in Compton and surrounding areas.
According to TMZ, Knight’s lawyer is arranging for his client to turn himself into to the sheriff’s department. He could be facing manslaughter charges or be let off the hook because he was in fear for his life when he fled.
**UPDATE** January 30
Suge Knight turned himself into authorities Friday morning, January 30, around 3 a.m.
TMZ reports that the former Death Row Records CEO was actually involved in two fights on Thursday. One took place on the movie set. The other occurred in the parking lot of a nearby restaurant.
According to witnesses, Suge got into his car during the second fight and intentionally tried to hit one of the men he was fighting with. Knight reportedly backed his car up once, then a second time.
He’s been charged with murder. His bail is set at $2 million.
