Compton - Authorities say Death Row Records founder Marion "Suge" Knight turned himself in early on Friday in connection with a hit-and-run incident that left one man dead and another injured.

The rap mogul's attorney said earlier that Knight ran over and killed a friend and injured another man on Thursday as he fled attackers.

In a brief statement released early on Friday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Knight was at the West Hollywood station with his attorney and was being interviewed by homicide detectives.

No other information was released.

Officials say that a red pickup truck struck the men at around 15:00 in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in the Los Angeles-area city of Compton and then took off.
