SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney in Utah says a shooting has left at least one person injured at a federal courthouse in downtown Salt Lake City.

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

U.S. Attorney's Office Spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch said the shooting happened in connection with a gang-related trial.

Rydalch didn't immediately say if the shooter was in custody.

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