Suge Knight Involved in Fatal Hit-and-Run in Compton

Suge Knight is in trouble with the law again. TMZ reports Knight got into a fight during a movie shoot in Compton and fled the scene in a fatal hit-and-run.

More from TMZ:

Multiple witnesses tell us a movie shoot — involving Ice Cube and Dr. Dre — was going down when Suge pulled up in his car. We’re told security told Suge to leave and that’s when trouble began.

A fight broke out between Suge and 2 men. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries.

It’s unclear at this point if the victim was connected to the movie. A source close to Cube tells us production had wrapped when the fight went down … and he and Dre were not on set.

Sources connected with Suge tell TMZ … the 2 men who fought Suge were the instigators. Our sources say Suge was scared because he’s in frail health — in addition to being shot 6 times last summer, he recently almost died from a blood clot.

The victim is Terry Carter, who we’re told is a friend of Suge’s who arrived with him at the scene. Our sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it.

Two other men were also hit … including Cle “Bone” Sloane — who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” — and suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both men are in the hospital.

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL: A fight broke out at a prayer walk at the scene of a deadly shooting at a home in Omaha, Neb. About 200 people gathered at the scene where Latecia Fox, Jakela Foster and Cameron Harris were killed in a gang shoot-out, at a house party.

Rival gang members started screaming at one another, literally “drowning out the messages of love and peace,” KETV reports.

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer made a plea for help Saturday.

“The violence that we are seeing here is the product of gang members with no regard for human life,” Schmaderer said. “Now that you are away from that scene and have an opportunity to be away from any intimidation, I am asking you for the sake of the community to contact law enforcement.”

Following tearful prayers, the Omaha community echoed his message.

“In the name of your friends, you have not went and talked to homicide detectives and said, ‘I was there, this is what happened and this is what I did,'” Barbara Robinson of Impact One said. “All those pieces together can solve something. That is, if we want to get and know who killed our loved ones.” Source: KETV

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge dismissed second-degree murder and other charges against Michael Johnson, 30, for the death of North Carolina teenager Phylicia Barnes, whose body was found in the Susquehanna River in 2010.

Judge John Addison Howard dismissed all the charges saying the prosecution’s “arguably circumstantial” case against Michael Johnson was insufficient evidence. He ordered Johnson be freed on Tuesday.

The State’s Attorney vows to appeal the ruling.

Johnson was arrested and charged with Phylicia Barnes’ murder in 2012, after she disappeared while visiting relatives in Baltimore. Her body was found several months later in the Susquehanna River.

Michael Johnson was convicted of second-degree murder in 2013. A new trial was ordered after a judge ruled that prosecutors had withheld evidence about a key witness.

Dr. Davidson had reportedly treated Pasceri’s mother, Marguerite Pasceri, before she died on November 15, 2014.

Stephen Pasceri asked for the Dr. Davidson, who is a heart surgeon, before the shooting occurred in the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center. He then turned the gun on himself in an examination room.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said they “don’t know why” Pasceri targeted the doctor. He said, “There is something in the past that upset this guy to come looking for this particular doctor.”
