Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The man accused of killing an aspiring rap artist at the Palms went before a judge on Monday.
Jim Johnson pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the shooting death of Evan Plunkett.
It happened inside the Sky Villa suite where a music video was being produced.
A friend of Johnson's claims it was accidental, and the gun went off when it fell on the floor.
Johnson will be sentenced in December.
