The VMAs are off to a pretty terrifying start, first a backup dancer for performer Nicki Minaj was reportedly bitten by one of the live-snakes used in the rehearsals, then Iggy Azalea fell off the stage during her rehearsal, now Suge Knight has been injured at a pre-party for the event.

The Rap tycoon, Marion “Suge” Knight, was hurt just this morning in the early morning hours of West Hollywood at a shooting that took place at a nightclub. Despite the shooting Suge is expected to survive the attack.

On duty Sgt. C. Tatar, the watch commander at the Los Angeles County sheriff department’s West Hollywood station, stated that Suge (49) and two other individuals (one man, one woman that have not been identified) were shot at the 1OAK club.

According to initial reports, the club was still full from the event, and no suspects have been named at this time. Suge is best known for founding Death Row Records, he was also shot before this, back in 2005 at an MTV awards pre-party (that one was in Miami).
