ORLANDO, FL (WCMH) — NBC News is reporting that the wife of the Orlando gunman told federal agents she tried to talk him out of carrying out the attacks.
Omar Mateen’s current wife, Noor, told the FBI she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said. She told the FBI that she once drove him to the gay nightclub, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out.
Mateen killed 49 people and 53 injured after opening fire at Pulse early Sunday.
Authorities are considering filing criminal charges against Noor for failing to tell them what she knew before the brutal attack, law enforcement officials say, but no decision has been made.
