When Omar Mateen opened fire on the crowded Pulse nightclub in Orlando on Jun 12, 2016, he committed what was at the time the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, killing 49 people.
It has been revealed that his original target was a busy shopping area at the Disney World resort.
His widow, Noor Salman, has been on trial for aiding and abetting his Islamic terror attack, and prosecutors have used text messages between the two to prove that she knew what he was doing. Salman also went with her husband when he purchased ammunition, and drove him to scout out the place ahead of time.
Testimony began on March 14 and jurors are now deliberating the case against Salman, who faces up to life in prison if convicted.
