BY: John “Hennry” Harris
On January 29, 2015, Suge Knight showed up uninvited on the set of a promotional video being filmed for the the record-breaking N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. Knight was reportedly turned around by security on the set, according to the Guardian, a Compton sergeant cited Dr. Dre’s restraining order against Knight, but his reputation precedes him and no one wanted to deal with him.
“They didn’t want no drama around the movie set,” said another source close to the film-making, who asked to remain anonymous because he wasn’t authorized to speak on behalf of the production. “Let them people make their movie in peace.”
Suge Knight would then pull his red F-150 Raptor truck up to a Compton burger stand where Cle “Bone” Sloan, who was working as site security and as a location scout assistant, ran up to Suge’s truck and in a freakish turn of events, Sloan ended up getting run over by Knight along with Terry Carter, an associate of Knight’s who had worked with him in the past, laid dead from injuries sustained from the hit and run.
Not much has been spoken about Carter, but his daughters are speaking out about the tragic loss of their father, who was believed to be attempting to be a peacemaker between Suge Knight, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
“He’s not just another victim, he’s my father,” said Nekaya Carter.
“I received a phone call from one of his childhood friends and he kinda just told me right there on the phone,” Carter’s oldest daughter Nekaya Carter said in an interview with Crime Watch Daily.
“He said, “Your dad’s been killed.”‘
“I didn’t know how severe the accident was. I found out when I got to the hospital actually, on the screen in the waiting room. That’s how I found out,” she told Crime Watch Daily.
“He was a true example of a man. He took the responsibility as a man, a husband, a father, a friend,” Carter’s niece Jasmine Reynolds told ABC 7 last February.
“He took in about 10 of my cousins and treated them all like they were his kids. He acted like a second father to them,” Crystal Carter said of her father.
“He would just put everyone together and make it happen.”
