SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A shooting inside a federal courthouse in Salt Lake City on Monday left at least one person injured, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney said.

The shooting occurred in connection with a gang-related trial, U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch said.

Police were called to the downtown U.S. District Court building about 9:45 a.m., and witnesses told the Salt Lake Tribune they saw someone carried out of the courthouse on a stretcher.

Rydalch didn't immediately say if the shooter was in custody. No other details were immediately available.

The case was being heard in U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell's courtroom.
