ORLANDO, FL (WFLX) - Wednesday morning an FBI agent was involved in a deadly shootout that could have ties with the Boston Marathon bombings.

Authorities have not identified the suspect, but, an Orlando reporter says, a friend of the suspect has identified him as Ibragim Todashev. That friend says Todashev was being investigated as part of the Boston Bombings and knew the suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
