Deadly courtroom shooting

(KSL) An alleged gang member on trial in federal court in Salt Lake City, Utah was shot and killed Monday by U.S. marshals after he attempted to attack a witness testifying against him.

“The defendant went after a witness…and when he engaged the witness at the witness stand, he was shot by the U.S. Marshals Service,” said Mark Dressen the FBI’s assistant special agent-in-charge for the Utah bureau.

“From what I understand, the defendant may have grabbed a pen or a pencil and charged the witness stand at that time,” he said.

Siale Maveni Angilau – aka “C-Down” – was shot multiple times in the chest. He was reportedly still breathing when he was taken away in an ambulance, but he died in the early afternoon at a local hospital.
