Noor Zahi Salman, the second (and current) wife of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, might face criminal charges for failing to disclose vital information about her husband's plans for the Pulse nightclub shooting that left at least 49 dead and another 53 wounded.
Officials, who say Zahi Salman is cooperating with their investigation, told NBC News that she told federal agents she was with Mateen when he bought ammunition and a holster, and once drove him to Pulse nightclub "because he wanted to scope it out." She also claimed that tried to talk her husband out of carrying out the attack.
According to local news, Zahi Salman, 30, lived in Rodeo, California before marrying Mateen in 2013, at which point he reportedly cut off her contact with her family. They have a three year old son, who they took to Disney World together—a federal law enforcement source told People that Mateen was scouting the theme park as a potential target also.
