Suge Knight Injured At VMAs!

Big Suge got shot again!

The former owner of the legendary Death Row Records was shot by an assailant after attending a party for "honorary Blood" member Chris Brown.

What party in L.A. won't be without a hip-hop themed shooting?

Knight was shot at a pre-Video Music Awards party, this time hosted by Chris Brown in Los Angeles. Shot 6 times, he was able to walk from the venue to an ambulance. His injuries required surgery.

Knight has ties to the infamous domestic terrorist group The Bloods.

The party held by the embattled pop star has brought the worst out. The Rolling Stone reports that two gunshots were initially fired at 1:35 a.m. in the 1Oak nightclub. Security helped Chris Brown and his table exit while many others in the crowd fled. At 1:50 a.m., police rushed into the club and forced the remaining guests to leave with their hands in the air.

On Sunday morning, Brown appeared to respond to the melee on Twitter. "It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes," he wrote. "Miss me with the bullshit!!!"

"Chris hosted an event in Los Angeles last night to celebrate the upcoming release of his album X, during which an incident occurred," a rep added to Rolling Stone. "This incident did not involve Chris; he was merely the host of the event. He has and will continue to cooperate with the investigation."

"People were screaming and yelling and most ran out immediately," a witness to the scene told Us Weekly. "The floor was covered with glass from everyone dropping their drinks."

According to TMZ, Knight was one of three people hit by the gunfire. At least one of the other victims is in critical condition. Knight was shot in the stomach and arm, but was able to walk out of the club on his own, and family sources tell TMZ that he is now out of surgery and in intensive care.

In 2005, Knight was shot during another pre-VMA party hosted by Kanye West. In that incident, he was struck in the leg when a shooter opened fire in the VIP room of the Shore Club hotel in Miami.

A representative for 1OAk did not respond to a request for comment. A spokesperson for MTV clarified that the network had no affiliation with Saturday's event.

To this day, Suge Knight is still bitter with Dr. Dre. They founded Death Row Records in 1992 and became one of the country's most popular and controversial hip-hop labels. Under Death Row, the label released the five classic albums, The Chronic, Doggystyle, Dogg Food, All Eyez On Me, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.

Suge Knight lost all rights to Death Row in 2007.
