Tsarnaev ally killed by FBI agent in Florida

ORLANDO — Since the early days of the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings, FBI agents have quietly scrutinized Ibragim Todashev, a professional mixed martial arts fighter with a violent ­record and a friendship with alleged bomber Tamerlan ­Tsarnaev.

But the scrutiny ended in bloodshed in an apartment complex near Universal Studios early Tuesday morning, where Todashev was shot and killed by an FBI agent ­after he allegedly attacked the agent in the middle of an interrogation.
