Orlando Nightclub Shooter's First Target Was Disney World, Prosecutors Say

The widow of Omar Mateen, the gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in the USA state of Florida, has been acquitted of two charges related to the June 2016 attack.

In the Florida courtroom, Noor Salman sobbed upon hearing the jury's verdict of not guilty of obstruction and providing material support to a terrorist organization, charges that could have brought life in prison. She said she wanted to see Noor Salman and look her in the eye and talk to her about what kind of impact this tragedy has had on people like her family.

Salman was also acquitted on charges of obstructing justice by giving misleading statements to law enforcement officers after the massacre.

The jury's foreperson anonymously emailed a statement to Orlando news outlets, saying that the verdict did not mean that jurors thought Salman was unaware of Mateen's plans.

"On the contrary we were convinced she did know", the statement continued. VIDEO: Pulse nightclub shooter's widow found not guilty on all countsProsecutors has argued that Salman knew about her husband's guns and his obsession for Muslim extremist videos.

Salman was the only individual butted in link with the carnage that left 50 individuals- including her partner, Omar Mateen- dead at Pulse bar. "I wish I had been more truthful", she wrote in the statement. "I want to thank the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who have worked tirelessly on this case in the quest for justice", Mina said. "She wants to get back to her son", her attorney Linda Moreno said. The jury had been provided with a signed confession that said she helped her husband. His intended target was the Disney Springs complex, prosecutors said. The case against her mainly consisted of a so-called confession she made to the police after intense questioning for over 17 hours.

In the end, there was never any evidence that Salman or even Mateen ever "cased out" the nightclub ahead of the shooting; there was never any evidence that Salman should have been held without bond, away from her child, Susan Clary, Salman family spokesperson told reporters outside the courthouse.

Prosecutors argued the messages show Salman was helping her husband concoct a cover story to tell his parents, who had invited the couple to a fast-breaking dinner at their mosque.
