“A Central Florida man who was shot and killed by an FBI agent early Wednesday morning was being investigated by the FBI and Massachusetts authorities in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings,” orlandosentinel.com reports. “Ibragim Todashev, 27, was shot in a condo at 6022 Peregrine Ave. in the Windhover community, a quiet residential area near Universal Studios, said FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier, a spokesman for the Orlando region. A friend of Todashev’s said this morning that the Central Florida man was friends with at least one of the Boston bombing suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.” Apparently, the Fibbies and a brace of Massachusetts State Troopers didn’t secure the interview scene as well as they might . . .
Couvertier told the Orlando Sentinel that during the early morning hours Wednesday, an FBI agent — along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel — were interviewing Todashev in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a violent confrontation was initiated by Todashev.
“During the confrontation, the individual was killed and the agent sustained non-life threatening injuries,” Couvertier said in an email statement. “As this incident is under review, we have no further details at this time.”
foxnews.com describes the deceased as “a former mixed martial arts fighter.” Anyway, the development raises the spectre of co-conspirators to the Boston bombing, additional “terror cells” and/or police incompetence. None of that was in the original narrative. Huh.
