Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department; unrelated arrest photo from 2012A wrongful-death lawsuit has reportedly been filed against Suge Knight in connection with the death of Terry Carter, and that Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have been named in the suit as defendants.

According to TMZ, Carter’s wife and children have filed the lawsuit claiming that Dre and Ice Cube, who are producers of the forthcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, hired known gang members to provide security for location shoots. The suit alleges that those gang members incited a fight and threatened Knight, causing him to drive through the parking lot in a panic where Carter was struck and killed in February. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Knight already faces a murder trail in July in Carter’s death.  He’s pleaded not guilt to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charge in connection with the incident.  His attorney has said Knight was fleeing attackers at the time.
