The family home of Orlando gunman’s wife, Noor Zahi Salman, has been raided by the FBI after she revealed she knew about his ‘plans’ in advance.Officers arrived at the address, in Rodeo, California, at around 3.15pm local time Tuesday. Three FBI agents reportedly entered the house – leaving after an hour and a half without comment.
It has been revealed that Salman, 30, knew her husband was planning an attack and pleaded with him to not go through with it. During interviews with investigators, Noor Salman allegedly acknowledged driving Mateen to the Pure nightclub at least once before her husband launched the attack.
Salman also reportedly claimed to accompanying Mateen when he bought ammunition and a gun-holster. The massacre – the deadliest mass shooting in U.S history – left 49 dead and 53 others wounded.
She also told investigators their April trip to Disney World was a family trip. However, authorities believe Mateen was scouting out the amusement park for a future attack. It is unclear whether she will face criminal charges, as authorities have yet to work out whether she possessed enough knowledge of Mateen’s plot.
