Investigators said, in exchange for a reduced sentence, Jason Shern pleaded guilty as charged on Saturday, according to WDTN.
In the course of last school year, CSU students lost two fellow Marauders. Hunter, a defensive back on the school’s football team, was considered as an upcoming leader on and off the field.
“Mr. Hunter was an energetic and hardworking student,” said Head Football Coach E.J. Junior, at the time of his death.
Hunter was shot by Shern outside the A-List Lounge on Ludlow Street in September 2011.
Students responded with agony and woe for the loss of Hunter and Jasmine Crenshaw, a CSU track and field athlete who drowned in a lake near Orlando, Fla.
A memorial in memory of both students is located near McPherson Stadium at Central State.
Shern faces a maximum of 15 years to life and will be sentenced on November 13.
