The police in Los Angeles were searching on Thursday night for rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight, who was believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run that killed one pedestrian and left another hospitalised in Compton, California, earlier in the day.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said it was investigating a "fatal hit-and-run accident" that had occurred just before 3pm. One victim, a man, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The condition of the other victim was unknown, the sheriff's department said.

Lieutenant John Corina of the department's detectives unit said Knight was believed to have followed the two men after a dispute with them on a film set, The Los Angeles Times reported. He was seen driving a red truck similar to the one that hit the men in a carpark and then backed up over them, The Times quoted Corina as saying.

Knight's attorney James Blatt told Entertainment Weekly the 49-year-old co-founder of Death Row Records ran over two bystanders as he tried to flee a fight on a film set in Compton.

Knight told the weekly that one victim, television actor Terry Carter, was a close friend of his. He identified the second victim as film-maker Cle Sloan.

Celebrity news website TMZ quoted witnesses as saying that Knight was involved in a shoot featuring rappers Ice Cube and Dr Dre.

Ice Cube posted a picture on his Instagram account on Thursday saying he was filming a commercial in Compton.

Knight founded Death Row Records with Dr Dre in the early 1990s.

Knight has had repeated brushes with the law. In October, he and comedian Katt Williams were charged with robbery after the police said they stole a camera from a celebrity photographer in Beverly Hills. In August, he was shot several times in a nightclub in West Hollywood.
