VMA Party Shooting

Cops Focusing on Gang Rivalry as Motive

EXCLUSIVE

Cops are focusing on beef between gang members that triggered the nightclub shooting that landed Suge Knight in an ICU with multiple bullet wounds ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told cops are interested in a common denominator with Chris Brown, Suge and Game -- Bloods affiliation.

Eyewitnesses tell us Brown was throwing up gang signs before the shooting inside 1OAK early Sunday and he was performing with a red bandana -- the Bloods' moniker.

Game -- who got in a fight outside 1OAK before the shooting because they wouldn't let him in -- is a known and proud member of the Bloods.  His album is called Blood Money.

As for Suge ... one of the most notorious things about him is his Bloods affiliation.

And we know ... cops are interested in this -- there were several known gang bangers surrounding Chris at the time of the shooting.

This could all be problematic for Brown .... He's still on probation in the Rihanna beating case, and hanging with gang members and throwing gang signs is not going to impress the judge.

What a classy group of thugs. Interesting that the Kardashian/Jenner gals and their beloved pimp mother are all attracted to this breed.

TMZ Please stop telling us how harsh the CA courts could be on celebrities because it just isn't true, as evidence by LiLo, Beiber, Brown, Drake. The only thing the Ca legislature restricts is firearms to law abiding citizens.

The whole rap culture is built around violence, greed, drugs, and sex. It should be no surprise that gangs are involved.

Whoever buys this music is nuts!

Suge staged it all. If they wanted him dead, it would have been a Head Shot.
