UPDATE 8/24 5:45a PST:
Suge is out of surgery. Family source say he was shot 6 times, not 2 as previously reported. He’s currently in ICU, but is expected to recover.
Suge Knight was shot six times at a pre-VMA’s after party at 1OAK nightclub, hosted by Chris Brown, reports TMZ. The incident happened Sunday morning at 1:30am (PST).
Thankfully, Suge Knight has nine lives, because once again he has survived a brutal attack. Although, he’s in the intensive care unit, doctors have successfully completed surgery and expect him to live.
According to reports the 300 plus pounder walked himself to the ambulance after being shot in the nightclub. There were 3 others shot and one is in critical condition.
Other celebrity attendees at the party included, Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri’chard and Apple de Ap. They all tell TMZ they were inside the club when they heard four shots rang off. Chris Brown took to his twitter, to say his peace on the matter —
It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullshit!!!

Clubgoers walked out the club with the “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” expression, while LAPD stood outside the club with guns drawn.
In the video below, it appears Suge Knight walked himself to the police car, where he sat and waited for an ambulance to arrive, then was escorted to the ambulance and taken to the local hospital.
It’s unclear at this time if the bullets were indeed intended for Mr. Knight or if he was an innocent bystander. However, with the sketchy details — given his devious past and being shot six times, seems like an intended hit.
More details to come as this story continues to develop. At this time, Suge is alive. Bless him.
