Friends say victim knew Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev
ORLANDO, Fla. - The FBI confirms a special agent was involved in a deadly shooting early Wednesday near Universal Orlando, and two friends of the victim say he was from Chechnya and knew one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
The fatal shooting happened just after midnight at 6022 Peregrine Avenue in Orlando.
"We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent," FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier told Local 6. "The incident occurred in Orlando, Florida. The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased. We do not have any further details at this time. We expect to have more information later this morning."
The FBI has not confirmed the link to the Boston bombing, but the friends say the man killed by the agent knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police near Boston days after the marathon bombing.
No other details were immediately known.

More “sleepers”. In six months, we probably will find out there’s fifty of them around the US. Get used to a sleeper-event every month or two after that.
Jihadis do not like to be confronted or taken in for questioning. FBI getting more serious about these people after embarrassment of Boston.
so nice to hear the terrorists have moved down to florida.
since before 9/11...
The suspect is deceased.......What a great start to the morning.
Unsurprisingly, the probable terrorist is called a "victim" by this journalist. Equally unsurprising - the self-confessed murderer in Boston is called a "suspect". I miss the days when words had real meanings.
Orlando in June will be crowded with vacationers and their kids. Just the sort of target the jihadis would like.
Thought there would be more people than just those two brothers involved with the Boston Marathon attack.
I thought Obama said it was just those two??? /s
Universal has been checking each bag and each purse at the end of the moving sidewalks since 911. Nobody gets past this without the check first. I also noticed security not checking bags seem to be profiling like the Israelis do. Whenever in Orlando, I like to go to Margaritaville for dinner. Some neat stuff technically in the park and friends of mine have programmed some of the attractions, but been in the two parks once now that is crossed off the list. OK once, but more than once is too much.
The location of the shooting is an apartment complex almost right next door. Maybe chose the location because of all the international travelers so it would be easy to mix with the tourists.
More friends of Obama. As well as Obama being derelict in his duties. Just want to be the first - OBAMA’S FAULT
Florida keeps cropping up in this. I think the fact that the jihadis have a sort of academic outpost here (remember Sami al Arian?) combined with the fact that Florida is easily accessible from abroad and has always had a kind of tolerant, Wild West attitude to unusual behavior and unsual types probably makes it easy for them.
As usual, the Muslims are taking advantage of something good and destroying it.
"The incident occurred in Orlando, Florida. The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased. We do not have any further details at this time. We expect to have more information later this morning."
Either he did not attend his intelligence briefing that year or he was not told about the problem only finding out when he read the papers.
Friend of the Boston bomber -
Near Universal Orlando
shot by FBI agent
was this Chechen ‘friend’ planning another pressure cooker type bombing in Florida?
Video still up on the FBI site shows a man with a hat and a bag following the two brothers. He is there in the first two sequences of the video but not the third. Also the guy looks down spotting the camera.
I know the above is rhetoric speculation but who trusts our government to ever tell us the truth?
This suspect would fit right in with the MetroWest community, not a surprise.
The condo development this guy was killed inside of is the same one that large numbers of Universal hourly employees rent in, in cramped conditions, to save money. It’s old for Central FL, built in early to mid 1970’s.
sleepers: I have not heard that term since Bush was President. And that’s sad.
So where do the Feebs assign their NOT-special agents ??
And wadda they call 'em, 'regular' .. 'average' .. 'lunks' .. 'the slow guys' ??
50? More like a couple thousand? They’ve been coming-in across the Mexican border for years; who knows how many cells are set-up right in plain sight, inside those mosques?
When they get their “go orders” from Iran, every “soft target” in the US will be hit and Beslan will pale in comparison. The muzzies have as much said so, and at this point, with 0muslim in the White Hut/Crib, I don’t doubt it.
(Granted, these 3 sources are perhaps sensationalized, but who knows with out porous borders, and evidence found in Mexico/TX?)
The announcer said he was 3-2 but the mixed martial arts sites state that he is 1-0 pro and 1-0 amateur.
Looks to be an interesting summer.
GoogleSearch for Todashev mixed marial arts pulls this up. He was 5-9 155 lbs..
This guy was just arrested and put through Orange County Jail central booking on May 4th.
Not sure when he got out, but it’s not like the FBI agents were forced to confront the guy in public.
I guess we shouldn’t dismiss the possibility that this now deceased individual knew something that would put Holder’s FBI or the Obama administration in a bad light—such as possible pre-Boston Bombing involvement of the Boston bombers with the FBI.
Don’t automatically believe everything the Obama/Holder regime puts out.
I'm betting that Obama signs an order shipping him back to mama and papa.
After all....If he was his son, he'd want him to be with his muslim family....even though the whole family is a bunch of terrorists who want to kill us.
I believe Obama wants any talkers DEAD.
You have to be PC in obumbler’s aMeriKa. The big bad G Men brutally shot a visiting tourist to Orlando. Now we have it correct. From the jay Carney media guide.
On my post in this thread prior to this one I give the url for a 6 minute video of a mixed martial arts fight he was in.
“The suspect is deceased.......What a great start to the morning.”
Mixed feelings—obama wants NO witnesses to the treason he is behind.
Yeah... isn't that great? As if Orlando isn't enough of a cesspool. Now I have to worry about them coming down the I4 corridor and infecting our beach communities.
I'm moving to some swamp in Hardee county.
That is a nose that has been broken in a fight in the mugshot. Consistent with him being a MMA fighter. Looks a little different in the fight video though.
no sleepers...this was workplace violence precipitated by a video on youtube
nothing to see here, move along.
Floriduh is full of jihadists and has been for years.
Words only what the government wants you to know.
no sarc needed...
have a nice day.
OMG YOU NAILED IT
he died or will die in a mechanical rice picker accident(see ‘city on the edge of forever’).
When it happens will the kenyan’s first be to protect the Mohammedans in the country?
“If your enemy is making a mistake, let him.”
We are their enemy. Political correctness is the mistake we’re making.
” His stated style of fighting was Russian sambo used by the Russian military.”
Well I’ll be darned, same as Obama!/sarc
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.
"The FBI kept asking, 'What's the connection?' But there is no connection... no connection."
Taramov said the victim had planned to return to Chechnya but had canceled his tickets.
"Me and him and my friends, we knew this was going to happen. That's why he wanted to leave the country," Taramov said. "But he canceled the tickets. The FBI's been pushing him, 'Don't leave, don't leave.' So he decided to stay," he said.
Taramov said the FBI had questioned him earlier Tuesday, but he was allowed to leave. When he returned, he said he found out his friend had been shot dead, he said.
"The FBI knows what happened," Taramov said.
I wonder if he gave up his network before or after Holder had him mirandized?
