(Newser) – Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight was shot multiple times at a pre-VMAs party early today hosted by Chris Brown, reports TMZ. The rap impresario reportedly walked out of the West Hollywood club on his own—reportedly bearing gunshots to the stomach, arm, and elsewhere—and was rushed to the hospital, where he has since undergone surgery. He's expected to recover. Two other people were also reported injured. Brown seemingly confirmed the incident via Twitter this morning, saying, "It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes." Other celebs including Tyson Beckford were at the party, adds MTV.
