Accused cop killer Shawn Gaston admitted he pulled the trigger the morning Alejandro "Alex" Valadez was shot, a top Cook County prosecutor testified Tuesday.

Assistant State's Attorney Fabio Valentini said he never informed the South Side man a Chicago Police officer was hit in the June 1, 2009, shooting.
