ORLANDO, Flo. – NBC reported Tuesday that the gunman’s wife tried to talk him out of attack that killed 49 people and injured 53.

Omar Mateen's current wife, Noor, told the FBI that she was with him when he bought the ammunition and a holster, according to officials. 

According to NBC, she also drove Mateen to the gay club, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out.

Now, authorities are considering filing charges against Noor for not telling them what she knew, but no official decision has been made, says NBC. 

She is cooperating with investigators, several officials say.
