Sun Corals can catch big stuff...I never knew that big though. Keep a check and make sure the shrimp isn't still lingering in the tank and the coral didn't just grab the exoskeleton....
My guess is maybe it went after something so large because it wasn't getting fed enough? How often are you feeding it?
Sorry to hear about your shrimp.
