Suge Knight Says Dr. Dre Sent Hitman to Kill Him
Last word from Suge Knight came in late February when the former Death Row head was placed in solitary confinement, what legal documents filed by Knight claimed was for an indefinite period of time and a violation of his basic human rights. Now, TMZ reports that new legal documents filed by Knight's new lawyer, Thaddeus Culpepper, allege that a 2014 club shooting that saw Knight on the receiving end of seven shots, was organized by Dr. Dre and facilitated by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept.
The newly filed legal docs claim that a Sheriff's deputy was working at 1OAK in West Hollywood during the 2014 VMA weekend, when he opened the venue doors to the would be gunman. According to the docs, surveillance video shows Deputy Henry Boyd letting the gunman inside with additional video showing Deputy Boyd helping the same gunman flee the country at LAX. The documents also claim that when Boyd was questioned by authorities about the shooting, he resigned from the department.
What's more, the documents allege that the shooter confessed that Dr. Dre paid him and a friend $50,000 to perform the hit, and that the Sheriff's department released the shooter from custody for no obvious reason. TMZ reports that Dr. Dre's camp had yet to provide comment on the allegations. Knight had previously claimed that he was half blind and potentially had a brain tumor, with these latest developments adding to the long list of allegations made by the incarcerated Knight.
