Report out on marathon bombing suspect's friend

Orlando, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida prosecutor said a friend of one of the Boston Marathon suspects threatened an FBI agent and a Massachusetts state trooper with a long pole before the Chechen man was fatally shot.

State Attorney Jeff Ashton said in a report Tuesday the agent was justified in shooting Ibragim Todashev last May. The agent and the trooper were questioning Todashev about his involvement in a triple slaying in Waltham, Mass. Todashev was preparing a written statement confessing some involvement when he threw a coffee table on the officers and ran past them.

The report said Todashev was searching for something in his kitchen, and he returned carrying a pole over his head. He was then shot by the agent.
