CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) – A St. Louis man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after admitting he fatally shot a bouncer at a St. Louis County bar in 2014.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 35-year-old Jamal Martin pleaded guilty Monday to charges of second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

He was scheduled to go on trial later this week on charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

Martin admitted that he shot 30-year-old Herbert Burnett in November 2014 at Knockouts Bar & Grill after Burnett had ordered Martin to leave the business.
