How to Become a Bounty Hunter

A gang member’s decision to attack a witness testifying against him Monday was a deadly one. KSL.com reports that Siale Maveni Angilau was fatally shot by a U.S. Marshall after he charged a witness in federal court in Salt Lake City.

“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, assistant special agent-in-charge of the FBI’s 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.

A marshal standing between the jury and the witness stand fired three to five shots.

“After the marshal fired, he told everyone to stay down. And he kept his gun pointed at Siale because he was still alive as he went down,” a juror said.

Angilau was breathing on the way to the hospital but later died, KSL reported.
