The former N.W.A rappers have been announced as defendants in Knight's murder lawsuit
According to a report by TMZ, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Suge Knight were all named as defendants in Knight's lawsuit for the alleged murder of Terry Carter.
Carter's wife and kids have filed a lawsuit against Knight for running Carter over in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. Below is the video of the altercation (Warning: Graphic Content).
The legal report also lists Cube and Dre, who are both producers for the movie "Straight Outta Compton", as defendants. It states that the two hired known gang members to be security for parts of shooting in areas with known gang activity. The hired security allegedly started the fight with Knight and threatened to kill him. Which caused Knight's reckless departure leading to Carter being ran over and killed.
Universal, the movie's distributor, is also involved in the lawsuit.
The Carter family is also suing the fast food restaurant, Tam's Burgers. The report claims that gang activity was nothing new for the local fast food restaurant and that security should have been hired to prevent possible gang activity.
The suit is suing Knight, the former N.W.A members and Universal for unspecified damages and compensation along with seeking a jury by trial.
Straight Outta Compton is set to hit theaters on August 14th.
