MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ Rap mogul Marion ``Suge'' Knight was shot in the leg early Sunday during a party hosted by Grammy-winning hip hop artist Kanye West, police said.

Knight, 40, was hospitalized in good condition, police said. He was shot during a celebrity-studded party at the Shore Club in celebration of the MTV Video Music Awards scheduled for Sunday night, said Miami Beach Police Officer Bobby Hernandez.

Sonja Mauro, a guest at the club, said a shot in the party's VIP section rang out shortly before 1 a.m.

``I was in there and I heard a pop and I ran out and got trampled,'' she said.

People attending the party began screaming and running for the doors, she said.
