Siale Angilau Shot In Courtroom After Attacking Witness

Tenifa had been on the witness stand for 22 ½ minutes when the video shows Angilau standing up from his seat beside his defense attorney, picking up a pen from the defense table and charging. In the video, a U.S. Marshal can be heard firing a gun four times and Angilau being told to drop the pen.

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

Video of a deadly courtroom shooting has been released.

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

The unidentified USA 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.

The Angilau family contended the marshal used excessive force on a man armed with only a pen.

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

Dramatic video released Monday shows a USA marshal firing four times at close range at a defendant inside a Utah federal courthouse after he rushed the witness stand, jumped and swung with a pen at a shackled witness who barely backed out of the way. He points out that Angilau was already down on the ground for the final three shots and that a courtroom full of officers could have stopped him to stop him before he harmed anyone with the pen.

A judge made a decision to release courtroom footage of the incident after a lawsuit from Angilau's family was dismissed.

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

THIS shocking footage reveals the moment a Crips gang member is shot dead in court after launching at a witness with a pen.

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

Angilau was one of 17 people named in a 2010 indictment accusing Tongan Crip members of assault, conspiracy, robbery and weapons offences. Angilau was the last person to be tried, as previous defendants were sentenced to 10 to 30 years behind bars. Faces of the marshal and jurors are blurred to obscure their identities.

Before he died, the incident prompted US District Judge Tena Campbell, who was hearing the case, to declare a mistrial.

The Utah Media Coalition fought for a year for Dowdell to release the footage, according to KUTV in Salt Lake City.
