The wife of the gunman who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history at an Orlando nightclub last summer has been taken into FBI custody.
Noor Salman was arrested at her San Francisco home Monday in connection with the shooting that resulted in the deaths of 49 people, The New York Times reported. A source told The Times that Salman has been charged with obstruction.
Salman's husband, Omar Mateen, sprayed bullets into a crowd of nearly 350 people in a popular LGBT nightclub in the Florida city on June 12, 2016. After a lengthy hostage situation, law enforcement officers shot and killed Mateen. He had earlier pledged allegiance to ISIS.
In a November interview, Salman told The New York Times that she was aware Mateen had been watching jihadist videos, but was unaware of his plans to commit mass murder.
