Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight was involved in a hit-and-run in Compton, Calif., that left one man dead and another injured on Thursday.
Knight’s attorney, James E. Blatt, confirmed that Knight ran over two bystanders when he tried to escape an altercation with two other men on the set of a film project where Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were present.
Blatt confirmed that the victim is TV actor Terry Carter (of McCloud and the original Battlestar Galactica) and was a close friend of Knight’s. Sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it. The second victim, whom Blatt identified as Cle Sloan, who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” is in unknown condition, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
The incident is still under investigation by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
