NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The man accused of shooting former Councilman Loniel Greene Jr. last November has pleaded guilty in court.

Brandon Hunt-Clark pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault, according to the Davidson County District Attorney’s Office.

The 20-year-old received three years of probation and must participate in a violence interruption-anger management class.

Green, the victim in this case, was unwilling to testify, according to the District Attorney’s office.

The former councilman was shot last fall after he pulled into the Marathon gas station at White Bridge Pike and Burgess Avenue in west Nashville.

As he pulled into the gas station, two young men were walking from the lot toward Burgess Avenue and made a right onto Oceola Avenue.

The former councilman appeared to follow the same path as the two men, police spokesman Don Aaron previously said.

Greene, who was interviewed by police while he was hospitalized, reportedly said he believed one of the men was a relative. He said he approached the men and was shot, but didn’t know why.

He was shot in his elbow, shoulder and chest. He was released from Vanderbilt University Medical Center days later.
