Furthermore, Chris only found out later that Suge had been shot — he was just trying to get out of there as quickly as possible. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time just like everyone else,” says our source. “It’s a shame and real stupid. Someone could have been killed and he doesn’t condone stupid sh** like that.
“Everyone inside were just regular people, not trying to be a part of any trouble. They all just wanted to be in the club, listening to his music and celebrating life without no drama.”
While Chris has yet to be approached by authorities, our insider has explained that Chris has “nothing to hide” and that he will talk to police should they come calling.
Suge, miraculously, found his way out of the club on his own two feet after being shot. He was then put into an ambulance and rushed into surgery. As of this writing, he is in the ICU following surgery but is expected to recover just fine, reports TMZ.
