Published: 2005-08-29
Awards shows have been reaching new heights of drama these past few years, and the 2005 MTV Music Awards are no exception. Music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight, 40, was shot in the leg at a party hosted by Kanye West in anticipation of the music awards in Miami Beach, Florida.

Shot between midnight and 1 a.m. on August 28th, Knight arrived at the hospital in good condition, and was scheduled to have surgery to remove the bullet and repair a broken bone. The police report describes the shooter as a black male wearing a pink shirt.

Witnesses say Knight was sitting at a table in the VIP room of the Shore Club when the shot was fired. No one else was injured in the shooting. Other stars attending West's pre-awards party included Jessica Alba and Eddie Murphy.
