    1 injured in reported shooting at Federal Courthouse, police say

    SALT LAKE CITY — A shooting led to the new federal courthouse being placed on lockdown Monday morning.

    Emergency dispatchers sent Salt Lake police to the building after receiving reports of a shooting. Details were scant but at least one person was driven away from the courthouse in an ambulance, escorted by marshals.

    The shooting occurred inside Judge Tena Campbell's courtroom during a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) trial involving an alleged member of the Tongan Crip Gang, according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office of Utah.

    Siale Angilau was the last of several alleged TCG members to stand trial in the ongoing case, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Jury selection was to begin Monday morning.

    According to a witness on the scene, the defendant, Siale Angilau, in the courtroom attacked a witness and was fired at by a U.S. Marshall following the attack.

    Then, according to the transcript, an unidentified voice cuts off Tenifa: "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa."

    The transcript then notes that "the defendant attacked the witness and the trial was terminated and the jury excused."

    Angilau, 25, was shot several times in the chest and died at a hospital at about 2 p.m. Monday, according to authorities.

    Witnesses who were in the courtroom said it appeared Angilau was trying to punch Tenifa when the shooting began.

    Courtroom attacker had long criminal history in Utah

    Angilau was accused of committing several armed robberies and assaults at 7-Eleven stores throughout the valley, dating as far back as 2002, when he allegedly robbed a store and assaulted the clerk.

    In late July of 2007, Angilau allegedly went one step further — by participating in a 7-Eleven robbery where one clerk was assaulted and another was shot and wounded.

    The next month, he was involved in an episode where an accomplice shot at two deputy U.S. marshals, who were not injured...

    ...Over the next two years, Angilau was indicted two more times for alleged crimes directly related to the marshals’ shooting: in 2008 on assault and firearm charges and in 2009 on two more assault charges.

    In a deal with prosecutors in May 2009, Angilau pleaded guilty to the original robbery charges and prosecutors dismissed the remaining assault and firearm counts.

    One year later, prosecutors filed yet another new case with four counts related to shooting at the U.S. marshals — one count of racketeering, one count of assaulting a federal officer, one count of assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering and one count of using a firearm during violent crime.

    http://www.sltrib.com/home/2258970-1...rt-to-withdraw

    Vilisoni Tuino Angilau — who entered guilty pleas in connection with a 2013 gang-related murder in Salt Lake City — has abandoned efforts to withdraw those pleas.

    Angilau, 22, had pleaded guilty to reduced second-degree felony charges of manslaughter and discharge of a firearm causing bodily injury in the shooting death of 19-year-old Sione Fakatoufifita...

    He faces up to 15 years in prison on each count when he is sentenced May 15 by Judge Bernards-Goodman.
