Before the VMAs even kick off in Los Angeles on Sunday, another name has been added to the growing list of headlines. Rap mogul Suge Knight, rap Boogyman and former head of Death Row Records was struck by multiple bullets at a VMA pre-party hosted by Chris Brown.

According to TMZ, the former Death Row chief was attending the party at 1OAK in Los Angeles when shots rang out. Details are of course sketchy considering the chaos inside but according to a few in the club “at least four shots rang out in the club.

Others who were in the club believing the actual target of the shooting was Brown himself. Brown has taken to Twitter himself to offer some frustration about the shooting.

Even at 49, Knight seems to revel in his badass stature. He was hit but walked out of the club on his own power. He was helped by an officer responding to the shooting and was then taken to the hospital for surgery. According to the report, Knight was shot six times, mostly in “the stomach and arm”. As of current press time he has gone through surgery and is resting in ICU.
