Suge Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, which launched the careers of several hip-hop stars of the 1990s, was involved in a hit-and-run incident on Thursday in which a man was killed, according to multiple reports.

The hip-hop mogul was reportedly on a set in Compton, Calif. on Thursday where there was a “vehicle versus pedestrian” collision, writes the Wrap, citing a statement from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.

TMZ reports that Knight’s lawyers are arranging for him to surrender to police.

Knight appeared to be on the set of a commercial that also included Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and The Game. The three posed in a photo posted on Instagram Thursday and TMZ and other outlets say that set was the scene of Thursday’s accident.

The accident is the latest violent incident involving Knight, who in October was arrested for stealing a paparazzi photographer’s camera. In August, Knight was shot six-times at a pre-party for the MTV Video Music Awards hosted by Chris Brown.
