LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials have released a 911 call from a witness who saw former rap mogul “Suge” Knight strike two men with his truck, killing one and leading to a murder charge.

On the recording released Thursday to The Associated Press, a shaken woman reports seeing a vehicle pull back and then forward, running over the men following a fight.

His attorney has said Knight was attacked and was fleeing in panic when his pickup truck killed a friend and injured another man on Jan. 29 in Compton.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say it was a deliberate act after a fight that began at another location during a video shoot.

Knight complained of chest pains after pleading not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run. He was released from a hospital Wednesday.
