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 grandmothers 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 whod been outside the store entered and held Sorenson down until sheriffs 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.

In fact its almost as if radical feminists have carefully cultivated this kind of hatred for decades now. Finally yielding results.
Will Hillary push passage of a “Violence Against Men Act” ?
She’s a victim, I say a VICTIM, of the Republicans’ war against women!
Only fat and ugly women hate men.
Mental illness, hatred of men, and a gun. Sounds like your average NOW/NARAL chick.
Didn’t you mean to say only fat & ugly women hate males?
-BAN FAT CHICKS-
Fat chicks suck!
Suck? They'll do ANYTHING... [ducks and covers]
Wow!...Grew up in Gig Harbor. Doesn’t look like a crazy Swede.
pretty much..they have low self esteem and don't know when to say no.
I'll let y'all fill in the punchline.
I hate reporting these days. There isn’t much to comment on with “a history of mental illness” being totally undefined.
Ok I’ll ping him then.........
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.
i was stationed in Bremerton, I think its one of the most beautiful areas in the world, but as i know first hand with my ex, it has some of the most crazy people in the world!
I’m fat and ugly and nobody likes me... Why not shoot people, that will show those evil oppressive men who’s boss!!””””
