LATEST: Police investigating the club shooting that put rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight in hospital on the eve of the MTV Video Music Awards have ruled out claims he accidentally shot himself.

Knight, who was released from hospital last week (ends02SEP05), was shot in the leg at Kanye West's pre-awards party at the Shore Club Hotel in Miami, Florida.

Police confirm they have ruled out suggestions the Los Angeles-based rap boss shot himself, claiming the suggestion "does not appear credible".
