Pulse nightclub shooter’s wife will change child’s name

Noor Salman, the wife of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, has filed a petition to change the name of her child, the Orlando Sentinel has reported.

Zakariaya Omar Mateen’s mother is apparently going to abandon the part that identifies him as the mass shooter’s son. It is unclear what his new name would be.

Omar Mateen killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub near downtown Orlando on June 12, and wounded at least 50 others.

Noor Salman has since moved from their former Florida home back to her native Southern California.
