Officials: FBI Agent Cleared in Florida Shooting



WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - Two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation say a Florida prosecutor has cleared an FBI agent in the fatal shooting of a Chechen man as he was being questioned about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect.
  
The officials say State Attorney Jeff Ashton won't bring charges against the agent.
  
Both officials spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly about the case. Ashton's report will be released Tuesday. The Washington Post first reported the prosecutor's decision.
  
The Justice Department also has been investigating but has not yet released its findings.
  
Twenty-seven-year-old Ibragim Todashev was killed in Orlando in May while FBI agents and others questioned him about his friendship with suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
