(KUTV) — Dramatic video was released Monday morning that shows the 2014 shooting of Siale Angilau, who was shot and killed by a U.S. Marshal as he charged at a witness in a Utah federal courtroom.

Video shows Angilau stand up and charge toward the witness. He then leaps at the witness and is shot, the video shows.

The decision follows a decision by a judge who issued two orders, the first of which sides with media on access to the video. This overrules objections by the Department of Justice to releasing the video.

The other order grants summary judgement to the defendants and dismisses the plaintiffs' excessive force claims.

Warning: Some viewers may find the content of this video unsettling.
