Corina said that about 20 minutes after the alleged argument on set, the victims visited Tam’s Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues.  Knight, 49, is believed to have followed the men in his truck before running them over the parking lot before leaving the scene.
“They obviously knew each other,” Corina told the Times. “They got into some kind of verbal altercation and it escalated. So far the people we talked to said it looked like an intentional act so we are handling it like a homicide.”
LASD confirmed that one of the victims, a 55-year-old man, died. The other, a 51-year-old man, sustained undisclosed injuries. According to TMZ, the dead victim was Terry Carter, a friend of Knight’s. Actor Cle “Bone” Sloan was also reportedly struck with the vehicle, and received non-life threatening injuries.

Cle “Bone” Sloane was an aspiring actor who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch“. You can watch his fight scene in the “End of Watch Here“:
