Wife of Pulse Nightclub Shooter Arrested in Connection to Orlando Mass Shooting

Mateen's attack killed 49 people (and at least 50 more) during what is widely considered to be the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Salman's first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday. She also said that the final text she received from Mateen - just before he was killed in a shootout with Orlando police inside the nightclub - was a question: Had she seen the news?

According to CBS, Salman has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation she attempted to stop Mateen from committing the mass shooting. Edmondson faces multiple charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon, and others.

It's unclear how long Salman has been living in the Bay Area, Danner says.

Mateen shot and killed 49 people in the nightclub on June 12.

Since the massacre, Salman was said to have been cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. One official said evidence shows the widow was complicit and was aware her husband was going to commit a crime. She had gone with Mateen to Orlando when he scouted the club, but she said she did not know the goal of the visit.

What Donald Trump thinks about civil rights icon John Lewis
Trump also used racially freighted language when he said that Lewis' Atlanta district was "crime infested" and "falling apart". Three of New York's congressional Democrats slapped back at the Twitter bombs lobbed by President-Elect Donald Trump at Rep.

Salman, who deleted her social media accounts shortly after the shooting and has since avoided the press, corroborated some preliminary reports in her interview with The Times.

Salman, however, told FBI investigators she tried to stop her husband from committing the attack.

As the weeks went by Noor Salman avoided speaking publicly about the massacre her husband had carried out and it was only at the November interview that she claimed to have no knowledge of what Mateen had been planning.

"I am glad to see that Omar Mateen's wife has been charged with aiding and abetting her husband in the commission of the brutal attack on the Pulse nightclub".

Authorities immediately began investigating whether the assault was an act of terrorism and probing the background of Mateen, a 29-year-old American citizen from Fort Pierce, Florida, who had worked as a security guard.

In December, Salman filed a petition in court to have their young son's name changed.
