#News – 9:30 PM PT — Cops found Suge’s truck abandoned in a parking lot in the Westwood section of L.A. It’s been impounded, but still no sign or word from Suge or his attorney.
8:15 PM PT — Cops just had a press conference … and believe two fights occurred. They said the first fight went down on the movie set — and then a second fight happened at a nearby burger joint … resulting in the fatality. Cops also said witnesses claim the car backed up and ran over the victim twice before fleeing the scene.
Sources tell TMZ Suge’s lawyer is arranging for his client’s surrender to the Sheriff’s Dept. It is unclear if law enforcement will arrest Suge for hit and run or manslaughter. It’s possible the cops could conclude Suge is not legally on the hook because he fled out of fear for his life.
Suge Knight got into a fight on the set of a film project in Compton, ran over a man who later died, and then fled the scene.
Multiple witnesses tell us a movie shoot was going down with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre when Suge pulled up in his car. We’re told security told Suge to leave and that’s when trouble began.
A fight broke out between Suge and 2 men. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries.
It’s unclear at this point if the victim was connected to the film project.
Sources connected with Suge tell TMZ … the 2 men who fought Suge were the instigators. Our sources say Suge was scared because he’s in frail health — in addition to being shot 6 times last summer, he recently almost died from a blood clot.
The victim is Terry Carter, who we’re told is a friend of Suge’s who arrived with him at the scene. Our sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it.
Two other men were also hit … including Cle “Bone” Sloane — who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” — and suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both men are in the hospital.
