SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say a U.S. marshal shot and critically wounded a defendant in a federal courthouse who rushed a witness stand with a pen at his trial in Salt Lake City.
FBI spokesman Mark Dressen said Monday that Siale Angilau (SEE'-ah-lay ANG'-uh-lau) was hospitalized with at least one chest wound.
Authorities say the shooting occurred in connection with a gang-related trial.
No other details were immediately available.
The case was being heard in U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell's courtroom.
