    Prosecutors believe Salman knew about the planned attack, came up with a cover story and did nothing to stop the shooting.

    Salman faces charges of aiding a former terrorist organization and obstruction of justice.
    Judge Paul Byron ruled evidence that involves police body-camera video and surveillance video from inside the nightclub will be allowed in court.

    The surveillance video shows Mateen walking around the club with a gun.

    The evidence also included cellphone video inside a restroom where Mateen fired at several victims and survivors. In the video, multiple rounds of rapid gunfire can be heard. 

    Body-camera video from officers showed law enforcement outside of the club giving medical attention to gunshot victims.

    Byron ruled last week that a terrorism expert will be allowed to testify about Mateen’s Facebook posts on the Islamic State group.
