COMPTON, Calif. (AP) – The attorney for Death Row Records founder Marion “Suge (shug)” Knight says his client plans to turn himself in to authorities after he accidentally ran over and killed a friend and injured another man as he fled attackers in Compton, California.

Authorities are investigating Thursday’s incident as a homicide.

Los Angeles County sheriffs say it looks like Knight’s pickup truck backed over the victims and then drove forward and struck them again.

The empty truck was found Thursday night in a Los Angeles parking lot.
