A man being questioned about his connection to a Boston Marathon bombing suspect 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.

NBC News confirmed that a special agent was interviewing Ibragim Todashev about his connections to bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and other extremists.

Todashev, who agents say was originally cooperative, died after he attacked the agent, and the agent shot him.
