The Wife of Pulse Nightclub Shooter Has Been Arrested by the FBI

After long suspicion of her involvement in the Pulse Nightclub massacre, the wife of Omar Mateen, Noor Salman has been arrested by the FBI for her involvement with the attack which killed 49 people at the Orlando LGBT club in July last year.

While she was not present in the club at the time of the shooting, it had been believed that she had prior knowledge of the horrific act, and even attended the venue with her husband prior to the mass murder. Salman was charged with obstruction of justice and with aiding and abetting Mateen in one of the worst mass shootings in America history.

Salman's lawyer, Linda Moreno claimed Salman’s innocence, saying in a statement to ABC News, “Noor Salman had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen intended to do that tragic night. Noor has told her story of abuse at his hands. We believe it is misguided and wrong to prosecute her and that it dishonors the memories of the victims to punish an innocent person.”

The Orlando police chief, John W. Mina, said otherwise in a statement, stating that he was “glad to see” Ms. Salman arrested.

“Nothing can erase the pain we all feel about the senseless and brutal murders of 49 of our neighbors, friends, family members and loved ones,” the chief said. “But today, there is some relief in knowing that someone will be held accountable for that horrific crime.”

Salman will appear in court in California on Tuesday.
