The Associated Press

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has been injured in an early morning shooting at a West Hollywood nightclub but is expected to survive.

Sgt. C. Tatar, watch commander at the Los Angeles County sheriff department's West Hollywood station, says the 49-year-old Knight and two others were hit at the 1OAK club around 1:30 a.m.

Authorities say the club was packed at the time, and they are still seeking a suspect. The other victims were a man and a woman.

Knight, who founded the label Death Row Records, was also shot in 2005 at an MTV awards pre-party in Miami. He helped him land and make megastars out of Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, shifting the center of the rap universe to the West Coast the 1990s.
