The 911 Call in Marion ‘Suge’ Knight’s Murder Case Has Been Released

1 minute read

A 911 recording made by a witness to a hit-and-run incident involving rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been released.

The call was made on Jan. 29, after Knight’s pickup truck hit two men in a parking lot in Compton, Calif., and sped off, the Associated Press reports.

“The car ran over two guys, there was fighting and then he just pulled back and pulled forward and run ’em over,” a woman told the emergency responders. “Two guys are laying down.”

Knight has been charged with killing his friend Terry Carter and attempting to kill Cle “Bone” Sloan.

Prosecutors allege Knight intentionally struck the two men with his car after a confrontation in a different part of Los Angeles.

But Knight’s attorneys say he was attacked by four people as he pulled into the lot after Carter had invited him for a meeting.

The 49-year-old pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges on Tuesday.
