Last Call Shooter Pleads Guilty

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The Topeka man accused of firing a gun at a group of people outside a Lawrence nightclub pleads guilty.

Carlos Jackson told the judge Thursday he wasn't trying to hurt anyone. Jackson said he just wanted to scare people by shooting into a crowd outside Last Call early on Feb. 10. Two club bouncers and a 15-year-old boy were wounded.

The 26-year-old Jackson had been charged with three counts of intentional aggravated battery and pleaded guilty to three counts of reckless aggravated battery. Jackson faces 10 years in prison when he is sentenced April 11.

Two women charged as accomplices in the shooting appeared in court Thursday and waived their preliminary hearings.
