After a fatal hit-and-run in Compton, Calif., Suge Knight is being interviewed by officers, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department announced early Friday morning (Jan. 30).

The Death Row Records co-founder’s whereabouts were unknown fullowing the incident, in which Knight allegedly got into a confrontation on the set of a Straight Outta Compton promotional shoot and then backed his truck into two people — one fatally — as he fled. Following the hit-and-run, which took place around 3 p.m. PT on Thursday, the Sheriff’s Department issued a bulletin to all Southern California law enforcement saying to be on the lookout for a possibly “armed and dangerous” Knight.

“Suge Knight, a person of interest in a fatal traffic incident in Compton, is at West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station with his attorney and is being interviewed by Homicide detectives,” read a press release from the L.A. Sheriff’s Department to Billboard. “There is no further information at this time.”

LASD confirmed that one of the victims, a 55-year-old man, died at the hospital following the crash. The other, a 51-year-old man, sustained undisclosed injuries. According to TMZ, the late victim was Terry Carter, a friend of Knight’s. Actor Cle “Bone” Sloan was also reportedly struck with the vehicle and received non-life threatening injuries.

This is the latest in a string of legal run-ins for Knight. In August, he was shot at a pre-VMA party in Los Angeles, and in October, he and comedian Katt Williams were charged with robbery after a celebrity photographer claimed the men stole her camera.
