An FBI agent shot and killed a man who had been interviewed over ties to April's Boston Marathon bombing.
The suspect, identified by friends as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, reportedly knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older, deceased Boston suspect through the world of Mixed Martial Arts. He had been initially cooperative with police, according to WESH-TV in Orlando. But at some point during the interview process, he allegedly attacked an officer, who then fired his weapon.
Police tape blocked off the complex of townhomes near Universal Studios where Todashev was shot.

Does the FBI normally take suspects into an interview room without searching them thoroughly?
(In case you'd missed it, the dead guy was supposedly in the process of signing a confession to a triple murder, when he suddenly pulled out a knife. Yeah, right! )

This seems rather suspicious. One would think that the FBI agent would be able to do something besides immediately use deadly force.
