The Federal Bureau of Investigation said Ibragim Todashev was a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and was being questioned by an FBI agent and two Massachusetts State Police officers "when a violent confrontation was initiated by" Mr. Todashev. An FBI agent, "acting on the imminent threat posed by the individual, responded with deadly force," the FBI said.

Partial credit. You have one more detail to find, and then you need to complete the picture.
(The full picture is somewhat subjective, but impressions matter.)
WSJ wrote:According to Ms. Manukyan, Mr. Todashev lived in the Boston area from 2008 to 2010 before moving to the Atlanta area a few months after their marriage in July 2010. She says she and her husband moved to the Orlando area in 2011, in part because he had friends there and it was a better place for the mixed-martial-arts fighting Mr. Todashev practiced.
Bill Glasheen wrote:My point was the mindset of people dealing with him. A first glance should send signals that this person was accustomed to going toe-to-toe with others. Broken nose from being hit... cauliflower from mat burns... he also allegedly was limping from recent knee surgery. Add in the recent "parking lot incident" for which he needed to retain a lawyer, and you're painting an interesting picture.
Could you notice his capacity for violence with a quick glance? Probably.
