On July 4th, 2011, several adults and children were celebrating with fireworks in back of the residence at 4321 Pittman Road, Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri. At about 9: 13 PM, Blair Shanahan-Lane, an II year old child (W/F, 01124/00), was standing with several other children waiting her tnm to set off her fireworks when she suddenly fell to the ground. The supervising adults immediately rushed to the unresponsive child and paramedics were called. Blair Shanahan-Lane was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in extremely critical condition where a bullet was discovered in her neck. She was pronounced dead on 07/05111 and, after an autopsy, the manner of death was ruled a homicide on 07/07/11.

The next day detectives canvassed the surrounding area in an effort to detennine where the apparent random gunshot might have come from. They went to the office of the Whispering Lakes apartment complex, at 10415 E 43rd St. The office is roughly 1000 feet from the location where the child was struck by the bullet, with a small lake in between. The detectives discovered spent .9mm shell casings around the back of the office, on the wooden dock and in the water. Detectives checked with office personel and learned that the only person working the previous evening around the office had been Aaron Sullivan, B/M, 02/12/61, who had been monitoring the swimming pool until about 9:00 PM.

Aaron Sullivan was contacted anti admitted that he and three of his friends had fired his .9mm Glock handgun around the back of the office from about 8:50 PM until 9:30 PM on the night of July 4th.
