Professional mixed martial artist Ibragim Todashev, an alleged friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was shot and killed early Wednesday by an FBI special agent in Orlando, Fla., according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

Todashev, who was allegedly being interviewed about the April 15 explosions that killed three and wounded 264 others, was reportedly shot after the meeting turned violent, leaving the agent with non-life-threatening injuries. According to the report, the FBI is in the process of reviewing the matter.

Todashev, 27, competed in MMA once as a pro, earning a first-round submission win last July under the Florida-based Real Fighting Championships banner. Todashev was reportedly arrested on May 4 and charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm in Orange County, Fla.

According to the report, it is unclear how well Todashev knew Tsarnaev, who was killed in a police shootout three days after the bombing, allegedly carried out in cooperation with Tsarnaev’s younger brother. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested the day after his older brother’s death and is currently awaiting trial.
