SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - Police were dispatched on Monday to a shooting at the federal building in downtown Salt Lake City, a spokeswoman for the city police department said.

She said she had no further details, but local television station KSL-TV reported that at least one person was wounded in a shooting that erupted inside a courtroom during a racketeering trial of an alleged gang member.
