[UPDATE] According to law enforcement, Suge was involved in two fights at two different locations. The first took place on set of a commercial being filmed with Dr. Dre, The Game and Ice Cube. The second, which led to the fatality, was at Tam’s Burgers. Several witnesses say Suge backed up and ran over the victim, Terry Carter, twice before taking off.
The rap mogul’s red truck was later found in a West Los Angeles parking lot.
Suge Knight was involved in a fatal hit-and-run on Thursday afternoon in Compton that left one man dead and another injured.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells HipHollywood that around 2:55 p.m. their homicide bureau responded to a call at the 1200 block of West Rosecrans Avenue involving a hit-and-run.
We are told that two victims were transported to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries. One male adult victim, who is said to be Suge’s friend, Terry Carter, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The condition of the second victim, reportedly actor Cle Sloan, is unknown.
Suge apparently got into fight with two men and when he jumped in his car to escape, he accidentally hit Carter, who was attempting to get into Suge’s passenger door. The incident reportedly took place near the filming of a commercial with Dr. Dre, The Game and Ice Cube.
Game posted this photo before the accident with the caption:
“#YallKnowWhyImHere History made in Compton today.#Westside #Thedocumentary2 Coming Soon.”
Ice Cube posted the same photo with the caption: “Me, Dre and The Game shooting a commercial in Compton.”
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells us that Suge’s alleged involvement with the accident is still being investigated and that more information will be released soon. HipHollywood reached out to Suge’s lawyer, James Blatt, who also said he will be releasing a statement shortly.
Check out this video from a woman who was working at the Ride Aid across the street from the scene.
The Death Row Records co-founder was arrested back in October for allegedly stealing a female photographers camera in Beverly Hills. Marion Hugh Jr, the mogul’s legal name, is currently out on $500,000 bail and is expected in court on Tuesday.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!
Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…
Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.
If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.
So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
