Music Mogul Suge Knight was shot multiple times in a West Hollywood nightclub Saturday night, according to a TMZ report and video. Knight was at the 10AK Club for a party hosted by Chris Brown ahead of Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards show when gunfire erupted around 1:30 a.m. local time. Two others were also struck by gunfire during the ordeal, according to ABC7 in Los Angeles.

According to the Associated Press, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Knight and the other victims are all expected to survive.

TMZ obtained video from inside the club at the time of the shooting:

Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, is no stranger to gun violence. He was in the car in 1996 when Tupac Shakur was shot in Las Vegas. Knight was also shot in the leg during a Kanye West party in 2005., according to US Weekly.
