Suge Knight has reportedly turned himself in to authorities.
The former Death Row CEO, was apprehended shortly after midnight, at a West Hollywood police station.
The law offices of James E. Blatt, Knight’s attorney has confirmed to HipHopDX that its client Marion “Suge” Knight was involved in the hit-and-run incident that killed Terry Carter.
Additional details have been sparse.
According to TMZ, Knight was in an altercation with two men at Tam’s Burgers, near the 1200 block of West Rosecrans Avenue.
The celebrity gossip site also reports that while attempting to leave the scene following the fight, Knight jumped into his car and ran over Carter, who was attempting to get into the vehicle with Knight. Carter was later pronounced dead.
The other victim’s condition is unknown.
Law officials are reportedly approaching this case as a homicide.
But Knight’s lawyer has told reporters the incident was unintentional and that his client feared for his life. Blatt assured TMZ that the murder charge will not be filed because Suge was acting in self defense.
Knight is being held on suspicion of murder in the fatal accident. His bail has been set at $2 million.
