Man fires gun while taking selfie, sentenced 6 years
No injuries were reported
A man is facing six years and five months in prison for inadvertently firing his gun while taking a selfie in a strip club restroom.
The Associated Press reports the Florida man, Rorn Sorn, 34, was in the St. Petersburg club in December when his gun discharged. Sorn told a security guard he was "just trying to take a selfie" and that it was an accident. The bullet went through the mirror into the women's restroom, but fortunately no injuries were reported.
Sorn, an Asian Pride Gang member, pleaded guilty in April to possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. Sorn's prior felony convictions include burglary and attempted first-degree murder.
