Suge Knight Released From the Hospital; Nightclub Shooter Still at Large

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Suge Knight is going to be just fine. The rap mogul has been released from the hospital after surviving six gunshot wounds sustained Sunday morning.

Knight, 49, was sent home from Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai hospital Wednesday. Reports say he is healing well and will not need rehab, just follow-up visits.

Suge Knight took the bullets at a pre-VMAs bash hosted by Chris Brown at West Hollywood hotspot 1Oak, in what local police believe was a gang-related shooting.

The gunman who shot at Suge (or possibly tried to assassinate Chris Brown) is still at large, despite being caught on the security cameras at 1Oak.

Knight, Brown and rapper Game, all of whom have Bloods gang ties, were all present. No one has come forward to ID the shooter ... for obvious reasons.

Don't look for Suge to finger anyone, either. In fact, he reportedly feigned being sedated as soon as cops began asking questions about it in the hospital.

The incident wasn't the first time that the former CEO and co-founder of Death Row Records was involved in a shooting (nor will it be the last, we're guessing).

In 2005, Knight was shot in the leg at Kanye West's pre-VMAs party in Miami. Suge was also in the car with rapper Tupac Shakur when he was fatally shot in 1996.

Well, maybe fatally. Suge says Tupac is alive. He has voiced this belief on more than one occasion, even. But that's an article for another time.
