Suge Knight expected to make full recovery as police confirm he was targeted in LA club shooting
Former CEO of Death Row Records was shot six times at Chris Brown party on Sunday (August 24)
As previously reported, the former CEO of Death Row Records was shot at a pre-MTV Video Music Awards party hosted by Brown at the 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood in the early hours of August 24.
New footage obtained by the police shows that Knight was specifically targeted by the assailant, who shot him fives times in the stomach and chest and once in the arm. Two others were also shot, including 19-year-old model Megan Hawkins. All three are expected to make full recoveries.
"Video shows the suspect with a handgun firing at Knight [and] striking the two other victims who were in his vicinity," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt John Corina told CBSLA.
Meanwhile, Knight's family issued a statement on Monday which read: "The family of Suge Knight asks that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media."
"Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he's human. He's done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that."
Chris Brown himself has tweeted about the incident, distancing himself from any involvement.
It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullshit!!!— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) August 24, 2014
