The dramatic 24-second footage from the 2014 gang-related racketeering trial was released on Monday after a media coalition argued it was a public record in an important police use-of-force case.
In the video from the 2014 trial, defendant Siale Angilau can be seen standing from his chair, taking a pen from his defense counsel's table, sprinting and lunging toward the witness, who narrowly ducked out of the way before a US marshal shot four times, striking Angilau.
Video of a deadly courtroom shooting has been released.
In the clip, an officer can be heard yelling at Angilau: 'Drop the pen, drop the pen out of your hand'.
Angilau's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming the shooting was "particularly unreasonable, reckless and constitutionally excessive".
But Angilau family's attorney, said a jury should see the video and make a decision about whether the marshal used appropriate force. He was the last of the defendants to stand trial, with other gang members having received prison sentences ranging from 10 to 30 years.

Let's just say ol' Grindelwald is looking worse for the wear since the last time we saw him . Pictures has released the first preview for the film.
It shows Angilau, a member of the Tongan Crip gang, calmly rising from his seat beside his attorney during the witness testimony and grabbing his lawyer's pen. He also noted that the defendant was already on the ground when the Marshall fired the final three shots, CBS News also reported.
"Angilau was in custody, but he essentially had escaped custodial control for those seconds during which he was executing his plan to assault the witness", the judge wrote in a ruling obtained by Deseret News.
The unidentified United States marshal was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly after the shooting and a review board found the use of force was within agency policy.
'There was no necessity to use force'. "His attack was stopped by the shots that Jane Doe rapidly fired, in less than one and one-half seconds". Faces of the marshal and jurors are blurred to obscure their identities.
However, Judge Dowdell said that the marshal - referred to as Jane Doe - stopped the attack.
