Suge Knight Shot Multiple Times at Chris Brown VMAs Party (UPDATE)

At a pre-VMA’s party last night, hosted by Chris Brown,  Suge Knight was shot shot multiple times and taken to the hospital. He was “rushed” into surgery, according to TMZ.

A source close to Suge tells us … he was shot in the stomach and arm and apparently in other places as well.

Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri’chard and Apple de Ap all tell TMZ … they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard 4 shots ring out inside the club.

Suge walked out on his own power … a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.

Multiple sources now tell us Suge was one of 3 people who were shot. At least 1 is in critical condition. Sheriff’s deputies had guns drawn as clubgoers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting.

MTV updated the story later to say Suge was out of surgery. The hip hop producer and former CEO of Death Row Records, was shot 6 times. He’s currently in ICU, but is expected to recover.

There are several videos accompanying the TMZ story HERE.

Some of the celebrities attending the party were: Young Jeezy, Lil’ Twist, E.J. Johnson, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Richard Simmons, and Tyson Beckford, according to US Magazine.

“People were screaming and yelling and most ran out immediately,” the eyewitness tells Us Weekly. “The floor was covered with glass from everyone dropping their drinks.”

Model Beckford, grabbed the mic a few minutes later, saying, “It wasn’t a gun shot, trust me,” but at 1:50 a.m., police swarmed the club, forcing everyone to exit with their hands in the air.

Hours later Brown tweeted, “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bulls–t!!!”

Yikes. It’s not the first time Suge has been shot. The last time was in 2005 at Kanye West’s pre-Video Music Awards party, where he suffered a shot to the upper leg.  Suge may want to consider staying FAR away from the VMAs at this point.

Suge has also been arrested numerous times and has been implicated in the death of  rapper, Tupac Shakur, but never arrested or charged.


Eyewitnesses tell us Brown was throwing up gang signs before the shooting inside 1OAK early Sunday and he was performing with a red bandana — the Bloods’ moniker.

Game — who got in a fight outside 1OAK before the shooting because they wouldn’t let him in — is a known and proud member of the Bloods. His album is called Blood Money.

As for Suge … one of the most notorious things about him is his Bloods affiliation.

And we know … cops are interested in this — there were several known gang bangers surrounding Chris at the time of the shooting.

Chris Brown was released from jail in early June after spending months there for a parole violation. This new development cannot be a good thing for him.

  1. Altercations? What the actual?! Spin and minimize in those statements – but gunshots go WAY beyond ‘altercations’. ‘Disappointing’ would also qualify as understatement. Call it criminal behavior – closer to truth. IMO.

    What’s next – some fool saying ‘that’s why we can’t have nice things’? As if it were just a minor ‘social error’ to shoot people at a VMA party??


  2. Between this, the Nicki snake bite incident and Iggy falling there’s like this pre-VMA curse happening.

  3. It’s sad to say I’m not overly surprised, given Suge Knight’s history. This isn’t the first time he’s been shot.

    I hope that he and the other people who were injured will be ok.

  4. Wow, Suge is indestructable. Chris Brown, really? Why don’t you make sure your party guests are unarmed?

  5. Feel kind of bad for Chris a Brown. He really didn’t need this, and yes we know he was not involved. Interesting how long feuds can go on. If this is actually in retaliation to Tupaks death. I thought this gangster crap was last year. Guess not.

  6. If you invite Suge Knight to your party you invite the possibility of this occurring. Don’t lie with dogs and complain about waking up with fleas.

  7. I wouldnt be so quick to say Chris was not involved. The updated stories and eyewitnesses are saying the shots were meant for him, that HE was the target. Witnesses are also saying Chris was throwing around gang signs at some point in the evening and wearing a red bandana which the Blood gang are known for. This wasn’t about Tupak but some mess between CB, The Game and Suge.

  8. I stand corrected. I’m such an optimist! More fool me. Guess jail didn’t teach him a damn thing except now he thinks he’s a real gangster. Good way to get yourself dead.

  9. I’ve heard him referencing being a blood in his music before. Dude you’re not hard, you’re a r&b singer, stop trying so hard.

  10. He’ll have people come and clean up after him again, whether it’s his management or his record label. It will get done because he’s their money train. I saw a comment removed from another artist’s you tube video that tried to correct some misinformation regarding GMA room trashing attributed to that artist instead of CB. Of course the comment mentioning CB was removed & not the original false one. I knew then that CB has people taking care of his “business” and they’ll go in and clean up this too.

  11. Dont feel bad I try to see the best in people as well, but sadly with people like Chris Brown it seems they just dont learn.

  12. Suge seems indestructible, but it’s seriously time for him to walk from this gang crap. He and dr. Dre were partners until they had a falling out. Dre walked away from everything, left everything to suge, because he didn’t want this crap, and suge called him a bitch. Last time I checked dre is worth a billion, and suge is in surgery ….
