Boston Bomber’s Friend Shot Dead By FBI

todoA man who was interviewed over his connection with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects has been shot dead.

The incident occurred when a team of FBI agents swarmed an apartment complex near Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The man, named as Ibragim Todashev, had been interviewed over his connection to the Tsarnaev brothers who unleashed a vile reign of terror over the Massachusetts city last month.

The FBI confirmed Todashev, a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who is suspected of being behind the double bombing which killed three people and injured more than 260 at the marathon, was shot dead after becoming violent during the questioning.

In a statement,  spokesman Paul Bresson said the agent acted on an imminent threat and shot the interview subject.

The man being interviewed was killed and the FBI agent was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

An FBI team was dispatched from Washington to review the shooting, a standard step in such incidents.

Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police last month following the bombings. His brother Dzhokhar is in federal custody awaiting trial after he was found hiding in a boat in the Watertown area.
