Aaron Sullivan admitted Thursday that he fired the gun that killed 11-year-old Blair Shanahan Lane on the Fourth of July and also allowed others to fire the gun.

Sullivan, 50, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. His sentencing is slated for February 3.

Jackson County Prosecutor is reportedly asking Missouri lawmakers to pass "Blair's Law," which would make firing a gun in city limits a felony, with a few exceptions.

In July, prosecutors charged Sullivan with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.

Sullivan and three other men were celebrating July 4 by firing a gun from the Whispering Lakes Apartment complex, where Sullivan reportedly worked as a security guard.

A stray bullet struck Blair Shanahan Lane in the neck, killing her while she was at a party at her uncle's home at 43rd and Pittman.
