It looks like we may now know the identity of at least one accomplice who assisted Omar Mateen in his massacre of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla.
NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian brings us word that law enforcement officials may soon charge Noor Salman, who is Omar Mateen’s second wife, as an accomplice to murder.
It seems that Salman has told the FBI that she drove Mateen to the club several times in the days leading up to his attack. She also says she knew of his plans and tried to talk him out of it, NBC News reports. Salman also admitted that she was with Mateen when he went to buy ammunition and a holster, according to NBC News’ Tom Winter.
Salman, who resides in Florida, was spotted for the first time since the massacre leaving her home shortly after midnight on Tuesday.
