FBI agent cleared in shooting of Todashev

The FBI has cleared a federal agent in Boston in the fatal shooting of a friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev last year in Orlando, according to two law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation.

The same officials said Friday that a Florida prosecutor conducting a separate investigation into the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev, 27, during an interrogation last May had also concluded that the agent committed no wrongdoing. But the prosecutor quickly denied that he had made a final decision.
