Wife of Florida Gunman Who Killed 49 Has Been Arrested

FBI arrests wife of Pulse nightclub shooter, report says

Her husband, Omar Mateen, carried out the shooting rampage at Pulse Nightclub on June 12, 2016. It was almost three hours after the initial shooting began in the club that the Orlando police SWAT team were able to stop the gunman, killing him during a shootout.

According to law enforcement officials, Mateen also texted with his wife during the shooting, which has helped lead to the increase of scrutiny from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. At one point, Salman told Mateen that she loved him.

She was arrested in San Francisco.

Salman was arrested in the San Francisco area Monday morning, Danner said. He adds that she is being charged by federal authorities in Florida.

The other two stars in the system are a binary pair, named Alpha Centauri A (also named Rigil Kentaurus) and Alpha Centauri B. These two spin around each other every 79 years, separated by about the same distance as our sun and Pluto.

Authorities are investigating the shooting, that killed 49 people and injured dozens more, as a hate crime and act of terrorism. "Noor Salman had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen meant to do that tragic night", Salman's attorney, Linda Moreno, said in a statement. I am very sorry for what has happened. Salman said that during her pregnancy Mateen had even punched her during a trip to buy clothes for the baby.

Salman claimed last November she had no clue about what her husband was planning, according to a Times interview.

Salman is expected to appear in an Orlando court Tuesday after she's extradited, her lawyer told ABC News.

Noor said Mateen gave her $1,000 the day before the attack for her and their 3-year-old son to go to California, and then didn't come home for dinner. She had moved to Contra Costa County after the shooting.
