TMZ has obtained video showing Suge Knight fatally striking a man on a movie set in January. It's extremely disturbing.

On January 29, Knight drove to the Compton film set of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. He apparently got into an argument with two crew members before the rampage. Here's how TMZ explains the video:

You see Suge pull up and he is almost instantly confronted by Cle "Bone" Sloan, who did security for the film. You clearly seen Bone attacking Suge through the driver's window, when Suge suddenly throws the truck in reverse, clipping Bone with the side view mirror and knocking him down. You also see Terry Carter -- the man who ended up run over and dead -- standing near Bone. Terry moves into the parking lot when Suge guns it again, hitting Bone a second time and mowing Terry down, mortally wounding him...

Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge's lawyer claims Bone and Terry both had guns. Check out the video. As Bone lays on the ground you clearly see another man walk up, remove something from Bone and put it in his waistband.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... they believe the video shows that Suge could have escaped after hitting Bone the first time by simply driving down the road. But Suge's people say the group assembled near the truck was ominous and he feared if he drove past them he'd be shot.

It's believed the Death Row Records founder may have been upset about how he was being portrayed in the film.

Knight was charged with murder and attempted murder and has been in jail for the past weeks because of his criminal past.
