Orange County Jail – Ibragim Todashev

A man who was shot dead by an FBI agent late Tuesday night in Orlando knew one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, a man identified as friend of the victim said Wednesday.

The agent encountered the man while conducting official duties, agent Dave Couvertier said in a statement.

A man at the scene on Peregrine Avenue near Kirkman and Vineland roads who identified himself as a friend of the victim said the man knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother suspected in the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured more than 260.

Khusen Taramov said he and his friend had no connection with the Boston bombings, but the FBI had been questioning them since then.

“He used to talk on the phone with him [Tsarnaev],” Taramov said of his friend. “They talked last time a month ago. After the bombing, I couldn’t believe it,” he said.

NICOLE PESECKY : I’m Nicole Pesecky live in Orlando following breaking news in an FBI related shooting that happened here at this apartment complex early this morning. We do just have new information from the FBI. Confirming that the suspect killed here was someone they were looking at in connection with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, based on contact that they, that he had. They say it is possible that when he tried to leave to go back home from Chechnya, which is where his friends say he is from. He possibly found himself on the no-fly list and had to return home, and he may have been angry because of that. His friends tell me that flight was booked for yesterday and he did cancel that flight and wasn’t able to return home to Chechnya to visit yesterday. (more)

Orlando Sentinel: Friend: Orlando man killed by FBI agent was questioned in Boston Marathon bombings.

That man, Khusn Taramiv, thinks it was his friend — Ibragim Todashev — who was shot this morning in the 6000 block of Peregrine Avenue in Orlando.

Todashev, 27, was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office on May 4 and charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm

Taramiv told several television outlets his friend was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were mixed martial-arts fighters.

WESH: Orlando man killed by FBI had ties to Boston Marathon bombing suspect, NBC News confirms: Man knew Boston bombing suspect, friend says.

A friend of the suspect, Khusn Taramiv, said his friend, 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew Tsarnaev because both were MMA fighters.

Taramiv claims he and Todashev were interviewed by the FBI for nearly three hours on Tuesday.

“(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they’re going to bring him back. They never brought him back,” Taramiv said.

CBS News:

Miller reported that FBI agents went to Todashev’s apartment complex after midnight Wednesday morning to question him. Todashev had been on the bureau’s radar since Tsarnaev was identified as a suspect in the bombing.

“He had been interviewed along with a number of other people in the apartment complex, but the interest in him was higher because of a couple of factors: He was in contact with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He had been to Boston to visit him, and he was planning a trip to Chechnya,” Miller said.

FBI agents went to question him overnight after there were indications that he canceled that trip, Miller said.

“In the encounter in the apartment, something went wrong,” Miller said.

      Why was the FBI conducting an “interview” past midnight? Seems strange………

      #1— Take you PC bullshit about what seems strange some where else.

      Do you have all the facts yet? No, and neither do I. What I do have for facts are how many innocent people were killed and critically maimed here in Boston and lost limbs due to these terrorists acts of the Brothers. My money says in some way Todashev is also a radical extremist who hates Americans and wants to bring them harm and death here while he is living in our Country sucking off the fat of all America has to offer and the Russians wouldn’t let his ass fly back there for a reason, you dig?

      So,I for one am rather delighted another person exactly like the dead Chechen terrorist brother ate a bullet for his midnight snack.

      All, JMHO, of course.

      Nothing to do with PC B… S… But from highly intelligent AMERICAN indivuals,i.e. global investors, previous politicians – I’ve read of numerous discrepancies between the accounts and pictures of what the American people are being told/sold.

      Maybe I’m getting a bit nervous.LOL

      I have noticed for such a vocal crowd there are no comments on the IRS articles.

      See.. it is working……..

      Katts–the stories in the media have been quirky, I agree.

      IMOO, I believe there must have been a connection somehow. But again, the FBI isn’t saying much now but for a Fed to pull his Gun and shoot- there had to have been a reason.

      Time will tell when more of this story comes out but my money says this Chechan had ties to the same Terrorist groups Tsarneav was involved with.

      Just an educated guess, but what do I know?

      Either way, I’m glad he’s dead.
