Orlando Gunman's Wife May Be Charged as Footage Shows Her Going to Gun Shop With Husband
Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor, is in the crosshairs of an FBI investigation and could face criminal charges, as she reportedly accompanyied her husband as he purchased guns and ammo.
The surveillance video shows Noor Zahi Salman, who has a 3-year-old child with Mateen, by her husband's side as he bought weapons prior to the attack.
The footage, which has not been released, may prove that she knew about Mateen's heinous plans to massacre innocent people.
Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in the attack at Orlando nightclub Pulse, a gay hotspot, early Sunday morning.
Authorities are mulling criminal charges against Salman, 30, for not alerting officials about the attack. No decision has been made, but she she has been cooperating with authorities in the meantime.
Salman was seen returning to her apartment in Fort Pierce, Florida, Monday night for the first time since the massacre.
She was asked if she knew about the attacks but shielded her face from reporters and did not say a word. She was escorted by police as she filled a duffle bag with items from the apartment.
FBI agents also raided the home of Noor's mother near San Francisco. Noor is reportedly staying with her father-in-law for the time being.
