Death Row Records owner and chief instigator Shug Knight was shot multiple times at an unofficial pre-Video Music Awards party hosted by Chris Brown in Los Angeles on Saturday. (The VMA folks were quick to disassociate themselves from Brown’s event after the shooting.) Knight — who at 49 is way too old to be partying in nightclubs — was reportedly shot at least twice and as many as six times.
