Siale Angilau Shot In Courtroom After Attacking Witness

The video then shows a deputy US Marshall identified in court documents as Jane Doe pull her gun from its holster and fire four quick shots at Angilau

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Angilau, who was a member of the Salt Lake City Tongan Crip Gang, was on trial for racketeering, and the witness, Vaiola Tenifa, was a former gang member. He was not hurt.

In the video the officer is seen reaching for her gun and firing four shots at Angilau.

Dowdell granted the summary judgment Friday and dismissed the plaintiff's excessive force lawsuit.

"Drop the pen. Drop the pen out of your hand", yelled an officer standing over Angilau.

"Angilau was in custody, but he essentially had escaped custodial control for those seconds during which he was executing his plan to assault the witness", the judge added.

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

Angilau's family sued the court, with attorney Robert Sykes saying Angilau had ceased hostilities after leaping into the witness box.

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

The man jumped back to avoid being hit as Angilau fell feet-first over the front of the witness stand and the unidentified U.S. marshal fires his gun.

The unidentified United States marshal was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly after the shooting and a review board found the use of force was within agency policy.

Skyes said: "There was no need to use deadly force".

Sykes said he's glad the video was made public, but the Angilau family wants justice.

They have not yet decided if they will appeal the judge's dismissal of their lawsuit.

Angilau's family first filed the wrongful death lawsuit in 2014 - claiming he shouldn't have been shot because it was 'partially unreasonable, reckless and constitutionally excessive.

As US District Judge Tena Campbell was escorted out of the courtroom, someone called 911 at the end of the released video.

"We applaud Magistrate Judge Paul Cleary's decision in November finding the courtroom security video to be a matter of public record, and U.S. District Judge John Dowdell's order on Friday upholding that ruling", McKenzie Romero, the president of Utah Headliners and a Deseret News reporter, said in a statement. He later died there from his injuries.

Angilau was one of 17 people named in a 2010 indictment accusing Tongan Crip members of assault, conspiracy, robbery and weapons offences.

Angilau was also accused of assaulting two federal officers and brandishing a firearm.

He was the last defendant in the case to stand trial, with previous defendants being sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison.
