The shooting occurred at a pre-awards party being hosted by Brown.
A party being held in preparation for the Video Music Awards (VMAs) went sour after shots rang out.
Rap mogul, Marion “Suge” Knight is said to have been hit with six bullets while Chris Brown narrowly escaped getting shot.
The party was hosted by Chris Brown and singer Pia Mia in West Hollywood early this morning.
Reports have it that 25-year-old Brown was the main target but it is Knight who has been left hospitalized.
Two other guests at the party, which was attended by Tyson Beckford and Justin Bieber, are also in a hospital.
One of the guests, Katie Clendon said:
“Literally can’t believe what I just witnessed,”. “Someone tried to fire shots at Chris Brown at 1oak. Speechless.”
Knight is currently being treated at the Intensive Care Unit of the Cedars-Sinai hospital.
