Suge Knight Runs Man Over With His Car & Kills Him — Fight On Set
Suge was reportedly shooting either a movie or a documentary with The Game, Ice Cube, and Dr. Dre when he pulled up in his car, TMZ claims.
A fight then broke out between Suge and two crew members. That’s when Suge allegedly got back into his car, threw the vehicle into reverse and ran over Terry Carter, according to TMZ.
Apparently, the two men who Suge was fighting with were the instigators, a source tells TMZ.
Suge allegedly fled the scene and authorities are now searching for him. He is believed to be “armed and dangerous,” a source tells the site.
Authorities held a press conference hours after the incident and said that two fights occurred — one on the movie set and one at the Tam’s Burgers, a restaurant nearby. The fatality happened at the burger joint, according the deputies who spoke, TMZ claims. They also said that witnesses saw the car back up and run over the victim twice before fleeing the scene.
Suge’s lawyer is allegedly arranging for his client’s surrender to the Sheriff’s Department.
