(PIX11) — Former One Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight was reportedly shot early Sunday at a Los Angeles night club.

Shots were fired around 1:30 a.m. in the 9000 block of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, the LA Times reported.

One man and one woman were also injured in the shooting, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office. All three injured are expected to survive. Authorities have yet to identify a suspect in the shooting.

The shooting occurred at a pre-VMA hosted by Chris Brown at 1Oak, MTV and TMZ reported.

Chris Brown posted a promo for his 1Oak party on his Instagram Saturday night around 9 p.m iwth the caption, “We bout to turn the [f–k] up!!!!”

He later took to Twitter on Sunday, writing “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullsh–!!!”

Knight assumed the top position at Death Row Records in the early ’90s, which went on to dominate the West Coast rap scene, signing artists like Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur. He reportedly ran the label with an iron fist, and the shooting death of Shakur in 1996 fueled a feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers.

Knight’s career in the music industry ended after a nine-year prison sentence in 1997 for violating probation from an earlier assault case and subsequent prison sentences in the early 2000s. He filed for bankruptcy in 2006, citing civil litigation against him.
