Washington: Suge Knight is involved in a fatal hit-and-run after getting into a brawl on a film set in the Los Angeles area, it has been revealed.
It has not been confirmed whether the 49-year-old rap mogul, who was riding a vehicle when it struck and killed a man in Compton, was behind the wheel, People Magazine reported.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Grace Medrano confirms that at around 2:55 p.m., two pedestrians were hit by a vehicle at the 1200 block of West Rosecrans and were transferred to a local hospital.
Medrano, who did not disclose the victims' identities, said that one was pronounced dead at the hospital, while the second victim's condition remains unknown.
A source said that the deceased victim was Terry Carter, a friend of Knight's, who had appeared in several TV series including the original 'Battlestar Galactica' and 'The Fall Guy.'
Knight was supposedly visiting the set of a film project starring Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, when he allegedly got into a brawl with two men, then rushed into his vehicle and while it was backing up, fatally struck Carter, who was supposedly making his way to the passenger's side of the car when he was hit.
The insider says the Sheriff's Department is investigating the case as a homicide.
