Another two people have been shot along with Death Row Records founder Marion “Suge” Knight at Chris Brown’s pre-VMA party in Los Angeles.
Suge Knight is expected to survive, according to a Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant.
Another man, 32, and a woman, 19, were also shot at around 01:30 AM on Sunday morning at the 1 OAK nightclub in West Hollywood.
All three victims were treated at local hospitals.
Suge Knight, 49, who helped launch the careers of Tupac, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre has been shot before.
In 2005, he was struck in the leg during an MTV awards pre-party in Miami Beach.
Sunday’s shooting happened hours before MTV’s Video Music Awards, which took place in Inglewood, California.
Chris Brown was in the building when the shooting took place but the singer was not hit by gunfire.
Hours later, Chris Brown tweeted: “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes.”
MTV has said it had no affiliation or connection to the event.
It’s unclear what instigated the shooting and Los Angeles Sherriff Department has said they currently have no suspects.
