Father speaks about Chechen's fatal shooting in US

TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- The father of a Chechen man who was fatally shot while being questioned about his ties to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects is set to speak about what he has learned about his son's death.

Abdulbaki Todashev is speaking to reporters Tuesday about his attempts to find out how his son, Ibragim Todashev, died. The father traveled from Chechnya to investigate.

Ibragim Todashev was killed in May while being questioned by FBI agents and police.

Officials originally said Todashev lunged at an FBI agent with a knife. They later said it was no longer clear what happened. An investigation is being led by the FBI.
