Video Released in Salt Lake City Federal Courthouse Shooting

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

A US federal judge released footage of the 2014 fatal shooting of a gang member inside a courtroom Monday, showing the defendant rushing a witness with a pen before officers shot him.

Dramatic footage has been released of the moment an alleged gang member launches himself at a witness inside a courtroom before being shot dead. He was not hurt, the "Daily Mail" reports.

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

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

The FBI also found the shooting to be justified.

Mr Trump tweeted that Mr Pompeo, "will do a fantastic job!" and thanked Mr Tillerson for his service. Mike and Gina have worked together for more than a year, and have developed a great mutual respect.

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'.

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. "There was no necessity to use force", he said. The family had been allowed to view the video, but not to release it.

Donahue also pointed to a ruling Friday from US District Judge John Dowdell when he dismissed the Angilau's family's wrongful death suit, citing the video as proof that the US marshal who is referred to as Jane Doe in his ruling acted reasonably.

A judge dismissed an excessive force case against an officer after he shot and killed a defendant, who hurled himself at a witness who was testifying.

Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman told KUTV that Angilau told the judge he would behave so he didn't need to be shackled.

But he said the family is glad the video has been made public - and that they want justice.

He was in court after being one of 17 people named in a 29-count racketeering indictment that accused gang members of conspiracy, assault, robbery and weapons offences. He was the last of the defendants to stand trial, with other gang members having received prison sentences ranging from 10 to 30 years.

Magistrate Judge Paul Cleary ordered the release of a pixelated version of the video obscuring faces of law enforcement officers and others in November, but the Department of Justice objected.

The video was released after a media coalition, including The Associated Press, argued for its release as an important record in a police use-of-force case, according to the AP.
