ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A man was fatally shot when a team of FBI agents swarmed an apartment complex near Universal Studios in Orlando.
The shooting happened early Wednesday.
The FBI did not immediately return a phone call early Wednesday from The Associated Press seeking details.
An FBI spokesman told Orlando television stations that their agent was conducting official duties when the shooting occurred. No further details were released, but the agency says an update is expected later Wednesday.
MyFoxOrlando reported that a man at the scene on Peregrine Avenue near Kirkman and Vineland roads who identified himself as a friend of the shooting victim said the man shot dead 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. Taramov said the shooting victim had lived in Boston at one point, and the man and Tsarnaev were mixed-martial-arts fighters. He said the two were not friends but only acquaintances through their MMA fighting.
"He used to talk on the phone with him [Tsarnaev]," Taramov said of the shooting victim. "They talked last time a month ago. After the bombing, I couldn't believe it," he said.
