Rapper Suge Knight turning himself in to California police for hit and run

Suge Knight’s attorney claims he’ll be turning himself into authorities for a hit-and-run.

The Death Row Records co-founder is accused of killing a man named Terry after hitting him with his car.

And Suge’s lawyer James Blatt told ABC7 Eyewitness News in Los Angeles the 49-year-old is “expected to turn himself in to sheriff's deputies” following the incident.

According to TMZ, Suge became involved in a fight during a movie shoot involving Ice Cube and Dr. Dre taking place in Compton, California on Thursday. Apparently Suge pulled up to the film set in his car during the afternoon and when security asked him to leave, problems quickly escalated.

“A fight broke out between Suge and two men. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse ... and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries,” the website writes.

ABC7 reports Terry was the man who died as a result of being ran over. The second victim is supposedly actor Cle Sloan, who wasn’t seriously injured.

TMZ claims law enforcements sources have told the outlet police are informing all authorities based in Southern California to “be on the lookout” for Suge, despite the fact his attorney is preparing for him to turn himself in. Apparently he’s considered “armed and dangerous” currently and is wanted for a homicide interrogation.

Suge has been in deep trouble with the law recently. He is currently out on a $500,000 bail bond for the alleged theft of a paparazzo’s equipment. A hearing on that matter is scheduled for next Tuesday.

His health has been in flux too as Suge was shot by a gun during a pre MTV Video Music Awards party hosted by Chris Brown in August of last year.
