A Columbia man who was accused of killing two people in 2020 has pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Iseah Jackson, 19, will appear in court for his sentencing hearing at 4 p.m. Monday at the Boone County Courthouse. He is currently being held at the Boone County Jail.

Jackson was 17 when he was charged and was tried as an adult. Jackson was initially charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting off Volunteer Drive and North Grace Lane.

The two victims were an 11-year-old and a 38-year-old. Witnesses told police that Jackson was involved in the shooting after an errant firework went over into another yard according to court documents.

One person told police that he fired a shot back at someone matching Jackson's description after Jackson allegedly shot at a witness. The same witness told police that he tackled Jackson and took Jackson's gun away from him according to court documents.
