Knight was shot at a party a few months ago.

According to TMZ, the man who allegedly shot him was identified.

Law enforcement sources tell us they’ve reviewed security cameras and spoken to multiple witnesses of the August shooting at 1Oak, and while they’re confident they’ve identified the suspect responsible for shooting Suge and 2 others — they still don’t have enough evidence to arrest the suspect,” the site said a few weeks ago.

Suspects in the case, Knight, and witnesses have refused to speak to police about the matter, reports have noted.
