It happened at an establishment at 1514 E. 26th St.
Police said after an altercation with the girlfriend, Cross removed the gun from his waistband and began beating her on the top of her head. He then shot her.
Police later recovered a spent Tulamo .380 shell casing from the bullet used to shoot the girlfriend.
Cross will be sentenced by Judge Curtis Collier on June 5.
He faces up to 10 years in prison.
