BREAKING: Major news about Orlando terrorist ACCOMPLICE…

Speculation has been swirling about whether the man who murdered 49 and injured 53 in an Orlando nightclub acted alone. And tonight, it appears speculation about a possible accomplice to Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen is true.

ABC Florida affiliate WFTV is reporting this evening that an arrest of someone who may have helped Mateen may be imminent.

As WFTV reports:

Sources told Channel 9 Monday that law enforcement could possibly make an arrest in the next few days of someone who might have been aware that Mateen was planning to carryout the mass shooting inside Pulse nightclub that killed 49 people on Sunday.  

“We have no reason to believe that anyone connected to this crime is placing the public in imminent danger at this time,” said US Attorney Lee Bentley.

However, they stressed the possible accomplice was not in the nightclub at the time; there appear to have been no other shooters.

Of course, this possible second person, once in police custody, could provide a treasure trove of information to help authorities better understand Mateen’s full intentions, motives — and, importantly, any other connections to other terrorist and terror plans that may exist.

We will be watching this developing story closely and share more details as available.
