May 22, 2013  | 

A Boston FBI agent shot and killed a man suspected of a triple homicide on Wednesday who had ties to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

Ibragim Todashev, 27, reportedly "just went crazy" during questioning at an Orlando apartment and attacked the FBI agent with an edged weapon. The agent was wounded but returned fire, shooting Todashev in the head, reports ABC News.

The FBI agent, two Massachusetts troopers, and other law enforcement personnel were interviewing Todashev, when the violent confrontation took place, reports the Orlando SentinelThe agent sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to an FBI release.

Authorities believe Todashev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev murdered three men on Sept. 11, 2011 in Boston by slitting their throats and sprinkling marijuana on their bodies, reports the Sentinel.

Todashev, who lives in Kissimmee, was reportedly staying at his girlfriend's Orlando apartment, when authorities caught up with him Wednesday. He had been cooperating with the ongoing homicide investigation.

Where did he get an edged weapon from?

Questioning these days will get you killed. He was not under arrest so no one frisked him. I think we should treat these so called PC extremist according to the Obama Administration (Muslim Terrorists) the same way the US Military does besides this Terrorists stuff is entirely different then dealing with a bank robber or murderer. We need to train our LEO's for the new frontier in dealing with Cartels and Muslim Terrorists now. No Yesterday!

Good shooting by the agent.
The question I have is why we let these bozos in the country in the first place!

If the greater Muslim community doesn't start to take a stand against this infection, they are PART OF the infection and these untermenschen should be purged from the West.

This was a good start. No courts, no lawyers, just hot lead. Islam should be removed from the US, UK and Europe by force.

Muslims Raus.
