Suge Knight Shot in Miami, at Kanye West Party

Someone called us from Miami during the show tonight, and told us Suge Knight had just gotten shot at Kanye West's party down there.. looks like confirmation is coming in now. Allhiphop is on it here, and AP is checking in below. Contrary to initial reports, AP says he was only shot in the leg:

Rap Mogul Suge Knight Shot at MTV Party

Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was shot in the leg early Sunday during a party hosted by Grammy-winning hip hop artist Kanye West, police said.

Knight, 40, was hospitalized in good condition, police said. He was shot during a celebrity-studded party at the Shore Club in celebration of the MTV Video Music Awards scheduled for Sunday night, said Miami Beach Police Officer Bobby Hernandez.

Sonja Mauro, a guest at the club, said a shot in the party's VIP section rang out shortly before 1 a.m.

"I was in there and I heard a pop and I ran out and got trampled," she said.

People attending the party began screaming and running for the doors, she said.

Much as I may dislike Suge, I can only wish him a swift recovery on this one. As Kno of the Cunninglynguists said on OKP: "I can't wish death on anyone... especially those with children. Being a plague to rap music isn't enough to warrant death, though i wish he would just disappear in good health."
