KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A man was sentenced Wednesday to more than 11 years in prison after a 2015 shooting in a West Knoxville hotel parking lot.

Brandon Scott Woodley, 35, was given 120 months in prison for knowingly possessing ammunition after having been previously convicted of a felony. At the time of the shooting, Woodley was on supervised release from a previous conviction of being a convicted felon in possession of a cache of firearms, so he was given an additional prison term of 18 months to be served consecutively for a total of 138 months.

Dispatchers told WATE 6 On Your Side they received a call that someone had been shot at the Intown Suites Knoxville Extended Stay around 2 a.m. on Wedneday.

Woodley has been in custody since the August 2015 shooting at InTown Suties, located at 109 South Gallaher View Road. Witnesses testified during trial that Woodley shot co-worker Anthony Hall during an argument and tried to shoot him a second time, but the gun jammed. Woodley ran off and the gun was never found, but ammunition was found in the parking lot.

Hall ultimately recovered from his injuries.
