An attorney is actually alleging that the L.A. Police Department is responsible for the shooting that broke out at Chris Brown’s pre-VMAs party Sunday morning.

While Brown wasn’t hurt in the melee at West Hollywood nightclub 1OAK, famed rap producer Suge Knight was shot twice and is recovering from surgery.

Rumors are flying that the shooting was gang-related and/or a possible assassination attempt on Chris Brown. But a prominent lawyer has a different view.

Perry Sanders, the family lawyer for the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., said the LAPD (headed by Chief Charlie Beck) is to blame for the shooting.

Long ago, the department failed to indict Suge Knight for Biggie's murder; Sanders also charges that the LAPD knows who killed Notorious B.I.G.

Of course ... Sanders makes the claim about Brown's shindig even though the 1OAK shooting isn’t in the LAPD’s jurisdiction, making it flimsy at best.

As for the link between Suge and Big Poppa?

The gunman who shot Suge Knight and two others at a pre-VMA party early Sunday was caught on video, but witnesses to the attack can't or won't finger him.

West Hollywood nightclub 1OAK, where the shooting occurred, has a sophisticated surveillance system that covers almost the entire club, TMZ reports.

At least one of the security cameras clearly shows a man firing a gun.

Not only that, there have been numerous other Instagram videos that help pinpoint the suspect, whose facial features are clear enough to make out.

The issue? No witness has been able to identify Sunday's shooter.

While two of the four bullets fired struck Suge Knight, this may have been an assassination attempt on Chris Brown, who was hosting the VMA bash.

Chris Brown commented on Twitter following the possible attempt on his life Sunday morning which left Suge Knight shot and in the ICU with multiple bullet wounds.

Police are currently investigating whether the West Hollywood shooting was gang related, as Knight, rapper Game and Brown all share ties to the Bloods.

Moments after the shots were fired, Brown was seen climbing onto what appeared to be a bar in the club as a bouncer told partygoers to "Get down!"

Four hours later, around 5:45 a.m. Sunday, Brown spoke about the incident.

"It's disappointing that we as a society can#t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullsh!t!!!' Chris tweeted.

Yes ... it's such a shame people can't have fun without throwing up gang signs, associating with known gang members and asking for trouble everywhere they go.

The gang affiliation shared by Chris Brown, Game and Suge Knight is being investigated as a possible cause of the latter's shooting Sunday morning.

Police are focusing on a beef between gangs that led to the nightclub incident that saw Suge Knight shot and sent to the ICU with multiple bullet wounds.

Chris Brown, Gang

The common denominator between Chris Brown, Suge Knight and Game, all of whom were present and have ties to the Bloods, is being extensively probed.

Chris Brown was throwing up gang signs prior to the shooting inside 1OAK early Sunday a.m., and was performing with a red bandana, the Bloods' calling card.

It's not the first time the troubled R&B star has flaunted his Bloods affiliation, throwing up their hand insignia and even giving shout-outs on Instagram.

At least one member of the Fruit Town Pirus, a Bloods-connected crew, is on Chris' payroll; Game, who was also at 1OAK, is proudly one of the Bloods.

Rap mogul Suge Knight was shot twice at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood, Calif., earlier this morning, and was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The Death Row co-founder is in surgery, having been shot in the stomach and arm.

Witnesses including Tyson Beckford and Robert Ri'chard say they were at venue for a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard four shots.

Suge Knight took at least one of those bullets fired by an unknown assailant.

The 49-year-old walked out of the club under his own power and was helped by police into a squad car, then later an ambulance bound for the hospital.

Based on that, it is presumed he will be alright, although the nature of Suge's injuries isn't clear. Two others were shot in the altercation as well.

One of those unnamed individuals is said to be in critical condition.

Suge Knight had another encounter with the police Friday afternoon, which is only slightly less surprising celebrity news than DMX getting arrested.

Only Suge was innocent somehow! Like completely!

The former hip hop mogul was mistakenly pulled over by Los Angeles cops, who even pulled their guns on him, thinking he was an assault suspect.

Police had received report of an assault that took place Friday afternoon, then shortly thereafter, stopped Knight while he was driving in his vehicle.

The description of the assault suspect allegedly matched the music producer's appearance, but they soon realized it was a case of mistaken identity.

Not before weapons were drawn and Marion "Suge" (for Sugar Bear) Knight agreed to go to the police station to explain his innocence, however.

Suge Knight was arrested Wednesday for driving with a suspended license ... again.

LAPD officers noticed Suge straddling two lanes of the road near Beverly Hills at around 12:30 as he cruised around in his truck ... with no license plates.

The Death Row Records founder was pulled over and was sober, at least.

Only Sugar Bear failed to appear in court for one of his previous cases of driving with a suspended license, thus a warrant was issued for his arrest.

As a result, he was taken into custody and released on $20,000 bail.

Look for him to be pulled over again any minute now.

Suge Knight has NOT been arrested for the unsolved 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur, despite what recent Twitter rumors would have you believe.

The ex-Death Row honcho's crime record includes prison stints for drug possession, assault and probation violations over the last quarter century.

It does not, however, include a recent murder accusation.

Tupac was signed to Knight's label when he was gunned down in a Las Vegas drive-by in 1996, a murder that has never led to an arrest ... possibly because Shakur is not really dead, at least according to conspiracy theorists.

Spokeswoman Laura Meltzer of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which allegedly arrested Knight, spoke to E! about the rumor:

"I don't have any information that [Suge Knight was arrested]. We picked him up on traffic warrants in February ... that is the last arrest I show for him."

Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested in Las Vegas yesterday after a traffic stop. Cops say the hip hop mogul was carrying marijuana on him at the time.

Law enforcement sources say the one-time Death Row CEO was pulled over at 5:34 p.m. Wednesday for making an unsafe lane change in his Bentley.

Police ran Suge's name in the system (must have sat there for hours) and found multiple warrants out for his arrest, stemming from traffic violations.

After a quick search, police say they discovered a small amount of marijuana in Suge's possession. Knight was hauled off to a nearby jail for processing.

He was released a short time later after the obligatory mug shot.

Things could get worse for the man, though. Suge Knight is currently on three years unsupervised probation for driving on a suspended license.

Might wanna considering just getting a driver, Marion.

Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, involving a firearm. He was pulled over and taken into custody early this morning.

He was also taken into custody for driving on a suspended license. Knight is still in custody and bail is set at $65,000 ... pretty small amount for Suge.

Authorities said that Knight was arrested in connection to an alleged crime that occurred shortly before his arrest ... but they wouldn't elaborate further.

A witness in the incident told police that the rap executive pointed a gun at another car this morning - while sitting in the driver's seat of his own SUV.

No word if the target was Akon or Yukmouth.

GANGSTA: Suge Knight's 23,869th arrest sounds pretty violent. Dude has a mean streak, though we would too if our mom named us Marion. Please don't murder us.

Reports say after cops received the information, officers located Suge's car in the Los Angeles area and initiated a "high risk stop" - i.e. guns were drawn.

Officers drew their firearms and ordered Suge - and two women - out of the vehicle.  Suge was eventually taken into custody and arrested for assault.

Pretty run of the mill stuff for the hip hop mogul. Knight should be free, accept a plea deal and be back on the streets terrorizing people before long.
