Suge Knight is currently in jail awaiting trial for murder charges stemming from a fatal hit-and-run in Los Angeles that left a friend dead. Suge is now claiming he was his near fatal shooting incident at a nightclub in 2014 was a paid hit.
Knight alleges former associate Dr. Dre paid two men $50,000 to kill him, according to a court filing obtained by New York Daily News.
The Daily News reports:
“The filing alleges that the main sheriff’s detective now investigating Knight for murder also worked the nightclub investigation and previously told him a man identified only as “Tee-Money” confessed he was one of the shooters inside 1Oak.
The same detective “informed Knight that the gunman stated that Dr. Dre paid him and a friend $50,000 to kill Knight,” according to Culpepper’s motion.
The new court paperwork further claims that an off-duty sheriff’s deputy “was seen on video letting the gunmen in the front door of 1Oak.”
That same deputy allegedly was later seen at LAX airport “helping the gunmen flee the country,” the filing reviewed by the Daily News claims, and authorities “inexplicably released Tee-Money.”Knight, 50, was shot six times inside 1Oak but reportedly managed to walk outside and seek help after the barrage of bullets.
The Friday filing doesn’t state a motive for Dr. Dre to order a hit on Knight, but it references a recent news story titled “Can Knight Get A Fair Trial?” by writer Michael Douglas Carlin.
The Carlin story, attached as an exhibit to the motion, claims Knight was seeking money from Dr. Dre. It doesn’t link Dr. Dre to the 1Oak shooting but discusses various theories related to the 1990s rap wars, the still-unsolved murder of Tupac Shakur and alleged corruption.”
