Omar Mateen’s Wife Texted Him During Orlando Massacre
New details have been released about Omar Mateen’s wife Noor Salman.
The killer’s spouse whose been cooperating with the FBI, allegedly texted Mateen during his rampage and had previous knowledge that he might be planning the horrific attack.
Thee Orlando shooter and his wife exchanged text messages during the Pulse nightclub rampage, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told CNN.
Around 4 a.m. on June 12, about two hours after he started the attack and while holed up in a bathroom, Omar Mateen texted his wife, Noor Salman, asking if she’d seen the news, the official said.
At one point, she responded with a text saying that she loved him. Salman also tried calling her husband several times during the standoff, a second law enforcement official said.
The timing of her calls came after reports of the attack had emerged, and apparently after she realized her husband might be responsible. He didn’t answer, the official said.
It’s not clear if Salman made any attempt to report her husband during that time.
It’s also been reported that Salman knew her husband was planning an attack and gave police no warning.
Furthermore she allegedly drove him to Pulse nightclub to “scope out” the location.
The Orlando gunman’s wife feared he was going to attack a gay nightclub overnight Saturday and pleaded with him not to do anything violent — but failed to warn police after he left, NBC News has learned.
Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Zahi Salman, told the FBI that her husband assured her he was simply going to see friends, although she believed he was actually planning to unleash terror at the Pulse nightclub, a two-hour drive north from their home in Port St. Lucie.
Noor apparently had an inkling about her husband’s sinister plot after she told the FBI she once drove him to Pulse because he wanted to scope it out.
In addition, she said she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said.
SMH!!!! Lock her azz up!
