A Chechen immigrant fatally shot by an FBI agent in Florida had connections to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, the Associated Press reports.
Ibragim Todashev has a lot in common with bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed during a shootout with police. He has Chechen roots, experience with mixed martial arts and lived in Massachusetts.
The AP wrote that Todashev may have been involved with a triple murder in which Tsaraev is emerging as a suspect.
What remains unclear is why Todashev was shot.
