Avert your eyes if you have a weak stomach! A new set of photos, which show six gunshot wounds and a huge surgery scar on Suge Knight’s body, have been released. It’s a miracle he survived the shooting at 1OAK on Aug. 24.
Nine days after gunshots were fired at a Chris Brown-hosted pre-VMA party at 1OAK in West Hollywood, photos of Suge Knight‘s injuries have been released. The Death Row Records founder, 49, was shot six times during the early morning hours of Aug. 24, but he miraculously survived. We warn you — the photos are quite horrific.
Suge Knight’s Surgery Scar: Graphic Photos
In the set of pictures, obtained by TMZ, Suge’s wounds are revealed. And some of the six gunshot wounds are still packed with gauze.
There is also a huge scar down Suge’s stomach. Sources tell the site that doctors had to cut his torso open to make sure the bullets didn’t hit any major organs. Shockingly, they did not.
Interestingly, the gunshot wound in Suge’s arm is just inches away from his tattoo honoring Tupac Shakur. Suge was in the driver’s seat of Tupac’s vehicle, when the legendary rapper was shot and killed in 1996.
We must note that Suge was also shot in the leg at Kanye West’s pre-VMAs party in 2005. (He must have a guardian angel looking over him!)
