Man Tied to Tsarnaev Brothers Killed by F.B.I.
Feel safer yet?
An Orlando, Fla., man whom U.S. law enforcement questioned as an associate of the Boston bombing suspects was shot and killed after he tried to attack a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, according to the FBI and a law-enforcement official.
The FBI identified the dead man as Ibragim Todashev and said a shooting-review team from its Washington headquarters will be sent to Orlando to review the incident.
The FBI said it was interviewing the man with other law-enforcement personnel “when a violent confrontation was initiated by the individual.”
An FBI agent, “acting on the imminent threat posed by the individual, responded with deadly force,” the FBI said. . .
