NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Brandon Hunt-Clark has admitted to shooting former Metro Councilman Loniel Greene last year at a west Nashville gas station.

Hunt-Clark pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault on Wednesday.

As a part of the plea deal, Hunt-Clark will avoid jail time and serve three years of probation. He agreed to take two classes addressing violence, behavior issues and gun use.

Hunt-Clark's attorney Carrie Searcy originally planned to argue that Hunt-Clark shot Greene in self-defense after Greene followed the young man down a dark alley behind the gas station. 

“This has been a real learning and growing opportunity for him,” Searcy said. “He’s very young still. He realizes what it means to be an adult and to be responsible for what you do and take responsibility for your actions.”

Hunt-Clark instead decided to take the plea deal that will allow him to get out of jail almost immediately. He will have a felony on his record for life.
