LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Hip hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight, who was shot and wounded at a Los Angeles nightclub over the weekend, was resting at a local hospital but had "lost a lot of blood," his family said on Monday.
Knight, 49, was struck by bullets early on Sunday morning when a gunman opened fire at a club in West Hollywood during a party in advance of the MTV Music Video Awards across town at The Forum in Inglewood.
Knight, best-known as the co-founder of Death Row Records, home to such rap stars as Dr Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg, suffered multiple gunshot wounds but was expected to survive, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a written statement.
Two other people hit by gunfire, identified only as a 19-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man, were also expected to survive their wounds, the sheriff's department said.
"The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media," Knight's family said in a statement posted on his Facebook page....More
