Suspect Was Unarmed When Killed by FBI During Boston Bombing Questioning

One law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said Wednesday that Todashev lunged at the agent and overturned a table. But the official said Todashev did not have a gun or a knife. A second official also said Todashev was unarmed.

An official said that according to one account of the shooting, the other law enforcement officials had just stepped out of the room, leaving the FBI agent alone with Todashev, when the confrontation occurred.

This news overturns the initial reports that the man being questioned tried to stab the FBI agent, and confirms the account of his friend who was also questioned and accompanied him to the meeting.
