Report: Federal grand jury to investigate wife of Orlando massacre gunman

Federal prosecutors have convened a grand jury to investigate the wife of the Orlando nightclub shooter, seeking to charge her as an accessory to 49 counts of murder and 53 counts of attempted murder as well as with failure to notify law enforcement about the pending terrorist attack and lying to federal agents, a federal law enforcement source confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

FBI agents interviewed Omar Mateen's wife, Noor Salman, in the days since Sunday's massacre that killed 49. Mateen died in a shootout with police early Sunday morning.

A federal law enforcement source additionally told Fox News that Salman knew of her husband's deadly plans and did nothing to stop him.

A separate source told Fox News that Salman was cooperating with investigators and had shared information about her husband's violent aspirations. She could face arrest.
