Siale Angilau Shot In Courtroom After Attacking Witness

The video shows the moment the defendant Siale Angilau a member of the Tongan Crips gang stood up grabbed a pen or pencil and ran towards the witness stand- tossing him body over it to attack the witness

The witness who is also a gang member was shackled and chained up but still managed to sink into the corner of the courtroom and avoid the 25-year-old.

He then dashes towards the witness and attempts to vault onto the stand, brandishing the pen.

"Deputy Jane Doe" fired four shots at Angilau, killing the man, according to court documents.

US District Judge John Dowell said: "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".

The video is muzzed to keep the judge, officers and any witnesses in the courtroom from being identified.

A bailiff swiftly moved to block the entrance to the front of the courtroom and pointed at people in the gallery and told them to stay still with his right hand on his holstered weapon.

Someone is heard shouting in the direction of Angilau: "Get on the ground".

"Drop the pen. Drop the pen out of your hand", an officer yells at the defendant, as chaos ensues in the courtroom. The family had been allowed to view the video, but not to release it.

As he was on the floor, he was shot four times (in quick succession) by a nearby police marshal.

Counter-terror cops probe death of Russian Nikolai Glushkov in London
Glushkov worked in the 1990s for the state airline Aeroflot and Berezovsky's LogoVAZ vehicle company, according to media reports . Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was discovered dead late on Monday at an address in Clarence Avenue in suburban south-west London .

The judge in the case declared a mistrial, and the USA marshal was later cleared of any wrongdoing.

Lynzey Donahue, a spokeswoman for the Marshals Service, said in a statement the video "demonstrates how quickly violence can erupt, in any situation".

An investigation launched into the incident found the officer, who was not named, was legally justified in using the force he did.

The footage taken in 2014 was released after a lawsuit brought by Angilau's family was dismissed.

His family have not yet decided if they will appeal the judge's dismissal of their lawsuit. Angilau (pictured) is no longer visible at that point.

The family of Siale Angilau, 25, have argued that the U.S. marshal who shot him dead used excessive force. "Those last three shots were all after he's been shot once down on the ground in the back, and that's the problem I have with this case. There was no necessity to use force", Sykes said. "They weren't entitled to use the death penalty on him for an assault".

A mistrial was declared after the shooting.

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.
