Hip-hop icon Suge Knight is recovering in a hospital after being shot at this West Hollywood nightclub, early Sunday morning. Two others were also shot. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LAPD LIEUTENANT, JOHN CORINA, SAYING: "Apparently some altercation took place inside. Somebody pulled out a gun and started shooting. A person by the name of Suge Knight ended up getting shot. He's taken to the hospital." The 1Oak club was hosting a pre-MTV Video Music Awards party, and police say it was packed with hundreds of people when the shots were fired. TMZ reports that Knight, co-founder of Death Row Records, was in intensive care after undergoing surgery. It's not the first time Knight has been the victim of a shooting. At a Miami party in 2005 he was shot in the leg, also before the MTV music awards.
