Rap mogul Suge Knight fatally hit a man with a vehicle Thursday after a fight broke out on the set of a movie shoot in Compton, a celebrity gossip website reported.
Witnesses told TMZ that Knight attempted to flee the scene because he was in fear for his safety when he put the vehicle in reverse and hit an individual.
KTTV reported that the rap mogul's attorney confirmed his client was involved in a hit-and-run incident and planned to turn himself in.
