A Federal Bureau of Investigation agent shot and killed Todashev in May while he was being questioned about his involvement in the murders of three men in a Harding Avenue home in September 2011. Previous reports say the agent shot Todashev after the Todashev attacked him with a weapon.
The FBI has said it will soon release a report on its internal investigation of the shooting.
A new WBUR report lays out several details.
- Todashev told investigators, "I was there, but I didn't do the murders."
- Sources told WBUR the agent who shot Todashev, fired in two bursts. The first volley struck Todashev, but he got back up and the agent fired a second burst of shots.
- Todashev was not in cuffs at the time of the incident.
