Chris Brown is not thought to have been injured in the shooting but three other victims, among them Death Row Records founder Knight, 49, were taken to the city’s Cedars Sinai hospital where one of them was said to be in a critical condition.
The pre-VMA party hosted by Brown was packed with people, including model and actor Tyson Beckford, and Black Eyed Peas member Apple de Ap.
TMZ reported that four shots were fired at the party and that Knight was seen walking out of the club, and was then taken to receive medical treatment by paramedics at the scene.
