ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - New video has just been released from the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. It is graphic video showing the shooter, Omar Mateen, inside the club.
FOX 35 News has edited the video and is not showing any graphic images. This is all being released as part of evidence in the trial of Noor Salman, Mateen’s wife. She is currently facing charges of aiding a terrorist organization and obstruction of justice.
