US TV personality Carson Daly believes no celebrities are surprised by rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight's shooting in the early hours of Sunday morning (28AUG05).

Knight was hospitalised after he was shot in his right leg shortly before 1am in the VIP section of Kanye West's pre-MTV Video Music Awards party at Miami Beach's upscale Shore Club.

The party was attended by such stars as Eddie Murphy and Jessica Alba, and word soon spread among the revelling celebrities at a range of parties about the shooting.

Daly says, "Do you remember when were kids and played that game Telephone? It was like that. The first time I head about it, someone said he'd been shot 17 times."

He adds, "Nobody was surprised."
