Video shows U.S. marshal fatally shooting defendant who rushed witness stand

Siale Angilau a 25-year-old member of the Tongan Crip gang was shot dead while charging a witness during his trial

In the video from the 2014 trial, defendant Siale Angilau can be seen standing from his chair, taking a pen from his defense counsel's table, sprinting and lunging toward the witness, who narrowly ducked out of the way before a US marshal shot four times, striking Angilau.

Authorities on Monday released video of a US Marshal shooting an accused gang member who attacked a witness with a pen inside the Salt Lake City Federal Courthouse. He was not hurt, the "Daily Mail" reports.

Siale Angilau, 25, is seen charging towards the stand inside a Utah federal courthouse before a USA marshal fires four rounds at close range.

A video recording of the 2014 Utah police shooting of an alleged gang leader Siale Angilau (25) was publicly released today following a decision by a United States District Judge John E. Dowdell on 9 March.

The 24-second footage shows Tongan Crips gang member, Siale Angilau, rush to the witness stand, jump and swing at the chained witness - a fellow gang member - who is barely able to back out of the way.

An investigation launched into the incident found the officer, who was not named, was legally justified in using the force he did. He was concealed behind the witness stand when officers opened fire.

'His attack was stopped by the shots that Jane Doe rapidly fired, in less than one and one-half seconds'.

It was thus Angilau whose actions required Doe to make a split-second choice whether to end the attack or risk that Angilau would seriously harm V.T.

After Angilau was shot on April 21, 2014, and rushed to the hospital with at least one chest wound.

A wrongful death lawsuit by Angilau's family was dismissed on the same day. He also noted that the defendant was already on the ground when the Marshall fired the final three shots, CBS News also reported. "There was no necessity to use force", Sykes said.

His family have not yet decided if they will appeal the judge's dismissal of their lawsuit. Angilau was the last person to be tried, as previous defendants were sentenced to 10 to 30 years behind bars.

Faces of nearly all the people present inside the courtroom at the time, including the judge is blurred in the video.

In July 2016, the Utah Headliners Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and a coalition of Utah media, including the Deseret News, KSL, Salt Lake Tribune, Fox 13 and Associated Press, filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act seeking the video with the assistance of attorneys from Parr Brown Gee & Loveless.
