Gang member shot dead in court after he rushes witness stand

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

The video shows a USA marshal shoot and kill an alleged gang member as the suspect tries to attack a witness. His family filed a wrongful death lawsuit arguing excessive force saying the witness wasn't in danger by the time shots were fired.

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. The other gang member was shackled, but managed to escape to the corner of the room as Angilau leaped into the witness box and fell to the floor.

Court footage shows the witness sinking out of the way before a US Marshal shot Angilau, 25, four times.

The video is pixelated to obscure the judge, officers and others in the courtroom.

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

Authorities have identified the US marshal only as Jane Doe.

In a statement obtained by Deseret News US District Court Judge John Dowdell said the video contradicts the plaintiff's argument that Angilau stopped posing a danger within less than one second of launching himself at the witness stand.

But the judge dismissed that lawsuit, ruling that under the totality of the circumstances, the Marshal's "use of deadly force against Angilau was objectively reasonable and did not violate his fourth amendment rights".

An FBI investigation also found that "Jane Doe's" use of force was justified under federal law.

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 judge, attorneys and jurors are blurred out.

The Utah Media Coalition fought for a year for Dowdell to release the footage, according to KUTV in Salt Lake City. "And that's the problem I have with this case".
