2016 Orlando Shooting Breaking News, Photos, and Videos

Pulse Orlando Shooter's Wife Arrested By FBI

Pulse nightclub mass shooter Omar Mateen‘s wife, Noor Salman, has been arrested by the FBI today in San Francisco on Monday (January 16).

The horrific mass shooting happened in Orlando back in June and left dozens dead and their families in mourning.

Noor was charged with “obstruction of justice and with aiding and abetting Mateen‘s attempted provision and provision of material support to ISIL,” ABC News reports. Mateen was killed in a shootout in June after killing dozens of innocent people.

“Federal authorities have been working tirelessly on this case for more than seven months, and we are grateful that they have seen to it that some measure of justice will be served in this act of terror that has affected our community so deeply,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said. “Nothing can erase the pain we all feel about the senseless and brutal murders of 49 of our neighbors, friends, family members and loved ones. But today, there is some relief in knowing that someone will be held accountable for that horrific crime.”

Orlando's Pulse Shooting Victims Will Not Pay Hospital Bills

The victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando earlier this summer will not have to pay any of their hospital bills.

The two main hospitals that treated victims – Orlando Regional Medical Center and Florida Hospital Orlando – released statements saying that they will not bill any of the patients.

“Orlando Health has not sent any hospital or medical bills directly to Pulse patients and we don’t intend to pursue reimbursement of medical costs from them,” Orlando Regional’s parent network said in a statement to People. “We are exploring numerous options to help the victims of the Pulse nightclub tragedy address immediate and ongoing medical costs.”

“It was incredible to see how our community came together in the wake of the senseless Pulse shooting,” Florida Health said in a statement to People. “We hope this gesture can add to the heart and goodwill that defines Orlando.”

Orlando Regional treated a majority of the victims and the hospital’s unreimbursed costs could exceed $5 million. Florida Hospital Orlando’s costs for treating 12 of the victims has amounted to approximately $525,400.
