Suge Knight’s Family Responds To Club Shooting: ‘He Has Lost A Lot Of Blood’
“The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media,” the statement offered on Suge’s official Facebook fanpage reads. “Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he’s human. He’s done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that.”
Suge Knight Walked Out Of 1OAK After Being Shot
While eyewitnesses inside the club alleged that Chris was the intended target of the bullets, both sources close to Chris as well as his rep insist that he had nothing to do with what happened in the club, and he is happily cooperating with authorities as they investigate the incident.
Likely still high from adrenalin, Suge was actually able to walk out of the club on his own two feet before a police offer stopped him and put him in an ambulance, TMZ has reported. Two other people were injured in the club shooting, including 19-year-old model Megan Hawkins, who is still in recovery.
While we’re sorry to hear that Suge lost so much blood, we’re glad that he is in recovery and our thoughts go out to him as he continues to get well.
