According to court documents, Sorn was in the bathroom at Club Lust in St. Pete when his gun discharged. After hearing the gunfire, a security guard saw Sorn and another man exit the restroom.
When the security guard asked the men if they fired the gun, Sorn told him, “It was an accident, man. I was just trying to take a selfie.” The bullet made a hole in the bathroom mirror and went through the wall into the ladies’ restroom.
Officers from the St. Petersburg Police Department arrested Sorn a short time later. He had a .40 caliber firearm, a gun magazine, marijuana and Xanax pills on him when he was arrested.
Sorn is a known member of the Asian Pride Gang. He previously had prior convictions for burglary of a dwelling and attempted first-degree murder and is therefore prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.
