LOS ANGELES — A 911 recording was released Thursday in which a shaken witness reported seeing two men run over in Compton after a fight — an incident that led to murder and other charges against former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight.

The brief recording, supplied to The Associated Press by the Compton city clerk, was made on Jan. 29 after Knight's pickup truck struck the men in the parking lot of a burger stand and sped off.

"The car ran over two guys, there was fighting and then he just pulled back and pulled forward and run 'em over," a woman told the emergency dispatcher in a shaken voice. "Two guys are laying down."

"We tried to follow the truck and we took pictures," she added.

Knight surrendered the next morning. He is accused of killing his friend, Terry Carter, 55, and trying to kill Cle "Bone" Sloan, 51. Michael R. Shapiro, an attorney who represents Sloan, has said his client has a mangled left foot and some neurological issues.

Knight, 49, complained of chest pains Tuesday, about an hour after he pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. He was released from a hospital Wednesday and again taken into custody.

Prosecutors contend that Knight deliberately struck the men shortly after another confrontation in a different part of the city where filming was underway for a promotional video for the movie "Straight Outta Compton," about the rise of the rap group N.W.A. Knight's current attorney, David Kenner, said his client is remorseful about Carter's death but that does not mean he's guilty of the crimes.

Knight founded Death Row Records, a label that helped solidify West Coast rap and attracted the likes of ex-N.W.A. member Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.
