According to sources quoted by Fox News and Reuters, prosecutors have convened a grand jury to investigate Noor Salman, wife of gunman Omar Mateen.

Noor Salman is reported to have told police she tried to talk her husband out of attacking the Pulse nightclub.

Prosecutors quoted by Fox News said they were seeking to charge Noor Salman as an accessory to 49 counts of murder and 53 counts of attempted murder, as well as with failure to warn authorities about the impending attack.

Fox quoted a source as saying; it was possible that Mateen had called his wife Noor Salman from inside the club while the killings were taking place.
