A 911 recording was released this week in which a shaken witness reported seeing two men run over in Compton after a fight — an incident that led to murder and other charges against Suge Knight.

The brief recording, reported the Associated Press, was made on Jan. 29 after Knight's pickup truck struck the men in the parking lot of a burger stand and sped off.


"The car ran over two guys, there was fighting and then he just pulled back and pulled forward and run 'em over," a woman told the emergency dispatcher in a shaken voice. "Two guys are laying down."

"We tried to follow the truck and we took pictures," she added.

It was later revealed that one of the victims, Knight's friend Terry Carter, died at a hospital later while the other, Cle "Bone" Sloan, suffered injuries. The rap mogul surrendered to police on Jan. 30 and was subsequently charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run.

Knight, 49, complained of chest pains Tuesday, about an hour after he pleaded not guilty to the charges. He was released from a hospital Wednesday and again taken into custody.

The incident took place at a promotional shoot for the upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton, about the rise of the rap group N.W.A. The film's producers, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, were present at the shoot when the fatal confrontation took place. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
