Who would shoot Suge Knight, pages 1-25

Man, what a shock. Suge Knight shot? Wow, just because
you're a thug and a gangster and hang people out of windows,
people want to shoot you? Damn.

Who shot Suge?

Everybody clams up as he recovers

Cops probe 2 theories: New rap war or self-inflicted wound

and DAVE GOLDINER in New York

Medics cart Knight to ambulance.
Was hip-hop mogul Marion (Suge) Knight wounded in the opening salvo of a new rap war? Or did the godfather of gangsta rap accidentally shoot himself in the leg with his own gun?

Cops were investigating those dueling theories as witnesses and Knight's pals clammed up about yesterday's early-morning shooting inside a star-studded party in Miami Beach before the MTV Video Music Awards, sources told the Daily News.

Police were puzzled by the failure to find a shell casing inside SkyBar's VIP Red Room at the plush Shore Club - and that no one got a good look at the shooter. Knight gave only a cursory account of the shooting, raising more doubts about the event. He was in stable condition last night after doctors removed the bullet and set a fractured bone in his right leg.

"He didn't see anything, he got shot from behind," said Bobby Hernandez, a police spokesman. "He fell to the ground."

Hernandez said "an accidental discharge" was one scenario under investigation. No gun was found on Knight, but bodyguards easily could have taken one off him in the mayhem that erupted after the shooting, a source theorized. If Knight is caught carrying a gun, he could be sent back to prison because he is on parole.

A-list celebs and glitterati ran for their lives when the gunfire erupted at the party hosted by Grammy-winner Kanye West, who graced the cover of Time magazine just one week ago.

"Everybody just scattered," said Shirley Halperin, 23, an editor with US Weekly.

Like others, Halperin never saw the shooter, who some witnesses described as a black man wearing a pink or red shirt. The crowds of celebrities soon regrouped by the palm trees at poolside and the Video Music Awards went off as planned last night.

He's been talking a LOT of shit lately in the magazines and maybe some of the OG's or their studio gangsta counterparts didn't appreciate him running his mouth. Or people were just scared shitless of him.

I know you'll see a lot of irate commentary about this, but this shit is funny. Not the part where he got shot, but the idiocy around it. If they were so tough, they'd be in SF or something. They're just wannabe gangsters with guns they don't even know how to clean.

A bunch of musicians running around with guns. As they used to say, you can't take some folks no place.
