(NBC) -

The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection to the mass shooting, according to NBC News. 

Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. 

Details of the charges against Salman were not immediately made public, but law-enforcement sources said they are related to obstruction of justice. 

Authorities were considering filing criminal charges against Salman if it was shown that she knew what her husband was planning and did nothing to prevent it.
