An FBI agent in Orlando shot dead a man questioned in the Boston bombing investigation whom the agency says turned violent during an interview early Wednesday.
The suspect was identified by the FBI as Ibragim Todashev, 27, of Orlando.
FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the agent involved in the shooting on Peregrine Avenue near Kirkman and Vineland roads, near Universal Orlando, acted on an imminent threat and shot Todashev during an interview. The FBI agent was “conducting official duties” when Todashev initiated a “violent confrontation” and was shot, agent Dave Couvertier said in a statement.
The agent was with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel at the time, Couvertier said.
