TMZ reports that shots rang out in the nightclub around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday. Suge Knight was reportedly shot six times and rushed to the hospital by ambulance, where he underwent surgery. He is currently recovering in the ICU.

Knight, the founder and CEO of Black Kapital Records, was reportedly shot in the stomach and arm, among other places.

This is reportedly the second time Knight has been shot at a pre-VMA party; In 2002, he was shot in the leg at a party in Miami Beach, Fla., hosted by Kanye West, Billboard reports.

Two men and a woman were also shot, and one is reportedly in critical condition. “They were transported to local hospitals and they are expected to recover,” the L.A. Sheriff’s Department told People.
