Michael G. O'Neal pleaded guilty to one count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of a gun.
The attorney's office says on May 15, officers responded at 12:15 a.m. to a call of shots fired at 134 South Lorimier in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Officers say they encountered O'Neal who was yelling from his second floor apartment at 136 S. Lorimier. They say were unable to find out were the shots came from, so they returned to patrol.
