SALT LAKE CITY — A courtroom shooting that killed an alleged member of the Tongan Crip Gang is now prompting threats for more bloodshed.

On Monday, a U.S. Marshal shot Siale Angilau several times, and then on Wednesday, the Salt Lake City Fire Department sent out an advisory to its staff, warning of possible retaliation by gang members.

“After the recent gang-related shooting at the Federal Courts Building, there have been several credible threats to law enforcement officers by the Tongan Crip Gang,” the notice stated.

Angilau was on trial for racketeering charges when authorities said he suddenly tried to attack a witness on the stand, leading to the shooting.
