The wife of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen told the FBI just hours after the June 2016 rampage that she knew about her husband’s plot ahead of time, USA Today reported Friday.
Noor Salman reportedly told authorities that she knew that Mateen was “going to do something bad,” and that she was aware that Pulse nightclub would be the target. She also said her husband would regularly go to the shooting range, browse jihadi websites, and watch beheading videos while fuming about how the US treated Muslims in the Middle East.
The revelations surfaced last month when the FBI quietly released a 12-page account of Salman’s interview with an FBI agent shortly after the attack. The document appears to confirm previous reports that Salman was with her husband when he went to buy ammunition and a holster before the attack.
