Case File Reveals Inconsistencies In Loniel Greene Statements

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - New details in the shooting of former Metro Councilman Loniel Green have come to light, found in the case’s investigative records obtained by NewsChannel 5.

The records were released Thursday following a plea deal for Brandon Hunt-Clark, the alleged shooter from the Nov. 4 incident.

Among the investigative records was a statement by Justin Lawson, who was with Hunt-Clark during the shooting.

According to his statement, Greene confronted the two at the Marathon Gas Station on White Bridge Pike, first pulling up next to them in a car and shouting at them.

“What you n----s looking at? Say something, say something,” Green said, according to Lawson’s statement to police.

Lawson said Greene then left his vehicle and walked toward them, yelling “bring your f---ing a—here.”

Lawson said Greene started following him and Hunt-Clark, when Hunt-Clark turned and shot at Greene.

Greene told police that he mistook one of the men for his younger brother and he was trying to get his attention.

In the reports, the investigating officer said that Greene had told responding EMS personnel he had approached the two subjects to “preach to them.”
