      Authorities say a U.S. marshal shot and critically wounded a defendant in a federal courthouse.

      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 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.
