The former CEO of Death Row Records was at a shoot also involving Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Game when Knight got into an argument with two crew members. Knight then got back into his car and put the vehicle in reverse, running over a bystander.
The alleged victim, named Terry Carter, was a friend of Knight's and died after the incident. Actor Che "Bone" Sloane, who has appeared in Training Day and End of Watch, was also hit but only suffered non-life threatening injuries.
TMZ reports there was a passenger in Knight's car at the time of the incident, and that Knight later fled the scene.
Knight most recently suffered a blood clot in his lung in late 2014 stemming from when he was shot at a pre-party for the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
He is also awaiting trial for the alleged theft of a camera from a female photographer in September. He pled not guilty in November, and was scheduled to return to court on Jan. 27.
