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

In the 24-second clip, Angilau is seen suddenly standing up at the defendant table, grabbing a pen or pencil near him and running toward the witness stand, where another member of the gang was testifying.

"Deputy Jane Doe" fired four shots at Angilau, killing the man, according to court documents. He is behind the witness stand.

Lynzey Donahue, a spokeswoman for the Marshals Service, said in a statement the video "demonstrates how quickly violence can erupt, in any situation". However, on Friday, Dowdell dismissed the suit on the basis that the marshal had reasonable belief the defendant was going to harm or kill the witness.

An FBI investigation found the shooting was justified by law.

"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 in the verdict, Deseret News reported.

He said the video shows that the marshal "panicked" and should have used other methods to subdue Angilau. "There was no necessity to use force", he told KSL. "They weren't entitled to use the death penalty on him for an assault".

While Angilau's family decides if they will appeal the decision, their attorney is happy the public will at least see the video.

Angilau was in court after being one of 17 named in a 29-count racketeering indictment filed in 2008. Angilau was the last person to be tried, as previous defendants were sentenced to 10 to 30 years behind bars.

Dramatic video of a deadly 2014 courthouse shooting in Salt Lake City has been released after a long court battle by the Utah Media Coalition. The Department of Justice had wanted to suppress the video for fear it would spark a wave of gang-related retaliation.

Faces of the judge, attorneys and jurors are blurred out to protect their identities. The agency declined to comment on Monday about the release of the video. Audio of the shooting was released previously.
