(Orlando, FL)  --  An early morning shooting in Florida may have ties to the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.  An FBI agent seeking to question a Chechen man who allegedly knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev became involved in a shootout with the man in an Orlando apartment complex. 

The suspect died as a result of the shooting.  WESH TV in Orlando reports that the agent involved was questioning the man about his possible ties to Tsarnaev at the time the shootout happened, but the FBI is not confirming that report.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with law enforcement days after he and his younger brother Dzhokhar allegedly set off two bombs near the finish line of the marathon, killing three people.
