Woman charged with injuring three at Gig Harbor-area store pleads not guilty
Tacoma News Tribune ^ | Aug. 13, 2012 | Adam Lynn

Pierce County prosecutors said today Laura K. Sorenson took three things into the Peninsula Market near Gig Harbor on Saturday afternoon: a history of mental illness, a hatred of men and a gun.

By the time she left the market in handcuffs, three men were wounded, and blood covered the inside of the grocery at 14220 92nd Ave. N.W.

Sorenson later told detectives “she had decided to kill herself and wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone else first,” court papers filed today show.

“She states she had been molested as a young child and hated men,” the records show. “She admitted going to the store with the intent to kill someone.”

The 20-year-old woman was charged this afternoon with two counts of attempted murder and one count of first-degree assault. She pleaded not guilty. Court Commissioner Craig Adams ordered her jailed in lieu of $1.5 million bail.

Deputy prosecutor Patrick Cooper said Sorenson has a history of mental illness.

“The victims did appear random,” Cooper said.

She walked into the store about 12:45 p.m., put down her purse, pulled out a .357 magnum revolver and began firing, court records show. She reportedly got the gun from her grandmother’s home.

A 40-year-old man suffered the most serious injuries. A bullet hit his upper right arm, continued through his chest and out his back, the records show. A 78-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. A 20-year-old man apparently was hit in the leg by shrapnel.

A woman who’d been outside the store entered and held Sorenson down until sheriff’s deputies arrived, court records show. Witnesses said others tended to the wounded until paramedics got to the scene.

“The defendant had apparently put the gun down after all rounds were fired,” the records show. “… it appears the defendant made statements to at least two females present that she did not intend to hurt them.”

I don't think its so odd anymore.

In fact its almost as if radical feminists have carefully cultivated this kind of hatred for decades now. Finally yielding results.

She’s a victim, I say a VICTIM, of the Republicans’ war against women!

Mental illness, hatred of men, and a gun. Sounds like your average NOW/NARAL chick.

I hate reporting these days. There isn’t much to comment on with “a history of mental illness” being totally undefined.

I'd like to know more about that part of it. This unnamed woman tackled a gun-wielding psycho? God bless her.

Is she wearing a bullet proof vest at this hearing? I thought bullet proof vests were classified as weapons only to be purchased, used, by law enforcement agents.

Is it to protect her from the public? What if she bolted and the police needed to shoot her?

I believe that the vest indicates that she is on suicide watch.

It is held on with VELCRO. If she wants to kill herself, the vest won’t stop THAT. She is being protected from a retaliatory strike.

Check the link - the gown is designed so that it can’t be made into a noose.
