A 911 recording was released Thursday, with a shaken eyewitness reporting seeing two men run over with a truck in Compton after a fight.
The brief recording released by the Compton city clerk, was made on Jan. 29 after Knight’s red pickup truck hit the men in the parking lot of a burger stand and took off.
A woman is heard telling the dispatcher, “The car ran over two guys, there was fighting and then he just pulled back and pulled forward and run ’em over. Two guys are laying down. We tried to follow the truck and we took pictures”.
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.
Knight’s former attorney, James Blatt, has said Knight was attacked by four people when he pulled into the burger stand parking lot for a meeting. Knight hit the gas as he fled in fear, according to his attorney.
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 is scheduled to appear for a hearing Monday to determine whether he can be released on bail or must stay in custody. He could face life in prison if convicted.
