Death Row Records founder Suge Knight ran over a man, possibly killing him, during an argument on a movie set where The Game, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre were filming, TMZ reports.

Suge Knight got into a fight on the set of a film project in Compton, and ran over a man and we're told the victim is dead.

We're told a fight broke out between Suge and 2 crew members. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse ... and ran over a bystander.

The website says Knight's claiming he feared for his safety from the crew members due to his "frail health" after he was shot six times this summer. Knight's also facing up to seven years in jail on another pending legal matter—he was arrested with Katt Williams in October for allegedly stealing a paparazzo's camera.

Update 9:30 p.m. Knight reportedly fled the scene and is currently preparing to turn himself in to LAPD officers.

Update 11:30 p.m. The LA Times has more detail on the incident:

The confrontation began around 3 p.m. when Knight and two unidentified men began arguing on the set of "Straight Outta Compton," a biopic about the group NWA, said Capt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department detective's unit.

At least one of the victims was a member of the film crew, Corina said.

About 20 minutes after the alleged argument on set, the victims visited Tam's Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues, authorities said.

Knight is believed to have followed the men in his truck before running them over the parking lot, Corina said.

Witnesses said the truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene.

One 55-year-old man died and another 51-year-old man was injured. It's being investigated as a homicide, the Times reports.

Update, Jan. 30, 7:50 a.m.: Knight arrived at the LAPD's West Hollywood precinct early this morning flanked by his lawyer, the Los Angeles Times reports. He was arrested on suspicion of murder; his bail has been set at $2 million.
