Gang member shot dead in court after he rushes witness stand

Gang member shot dead in court after he rushes witness stand

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

Dramatic footage has been released of the moment an alleged gang member launches himself at a witness inside a courtroom before being shot dead.

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

The video - which blurs out the identities of the judge, witnesses, and officers in the Utah courtroom - shows the moment 25-year-old Tongan Crips gang member Siale Angilau stood up, grabbed a pen, and lunged toward the witness stand. "Drop the pen out of your hand". US District Judge John Dowdell decided to make the video public after he dismissed a lawsuit brought by Angilau's family claiming excessive force.

"The video completely contradicts plaintiffs' argument that Angilau stopped posing a danger within less than one second of launching himself over the witness stand while making a stabbing motion with a pen in hand", Dowdell wrote, according to the Desert News.

The FBI also found the shooting to be justified.

National Football League free agency rumors: TE Trey Burton to sign with Bears
The Eagles were widely expected to lose Burton, who racked up 23 catches for 248 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season. The Bears will sign the former Philadelphia Eagle to a four-year, $32 million deal once the league year officially opens.

'His attack was stopped by the shots that Jane Doe rapidly fired, in less than one and one-half seconds'. Attorney Robert Sykes said, "I think that a jury should see this video and make a decision about whether that was appropriate force".

Angilau's family argued the use of deadly force was not permissible in this case and claimed that the deputy fired several shots into Angilau's back after he was already incapacitated.

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

Angilau, who later died from his wounds, was one of 17 Tongan Crip members indicted in 2010 on charges of assault, conspiracy, robbery and various weapons offenses.

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