UPDATE - WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI says a man being questioned by authorities in the Boston bombing probe was fatally shot when he initiated a violent confrontation.

The shooting incident early Wednesday took place in Orlando, Fla., where an FBI agent along with other law enforcement personnel were interviewing the man, identified by the FBI as Ibragim Todashev.

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

Todashev 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 that is taken in such incidents.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A man reportedly connected to the Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was fatally shot when a team of FBI agents swarmed an apartment complex near Universal Studios in Orlando.

The shooting happened early Wednesday.

The FBI did not immediately return a phone call early Wednesday from The Associated Press seeking details.

An FBI spokesman told Orlando television stations that their agent was conducting official duties when the shooting occurred. No further details were released, but the agency says an update is expected later Wednesday.

    This was cold blooded murder by the fbi assassins. See my reports which the press refuses to cover, including law enforcement in my home on crazy fishing expedition:


    Journalists have always protected the fbi/cia from disclosure of their crimes against humanity; now, the journalists complain of suppression. My reports:
    Lurking behind the façade of popular & staged tv images of fbi (federal burro of investigation- the Jackass of the nation) is the real fbi , a group of traitors, homicidal sociopaths, torturers and assassins. Some of my reports:
