FORT MYERS, Fla. -- With still no arrests in the Club Blu shootings that left two people dead last month, a person of interest in the case is expected in court. 

As police await more leads into what happened at the club, Derrick Church, a person of interest in the shootings, will be facing a lee county judge for an arraignment hearing Monday morning. 

Church is currently facing charges of Aggravated Assault on an Officer, and Resisting Arrest after he led deputies on a car chase after the shooting. 

Police also arrested two other men in that chase, Demetrius O'Neal and Tajze Battle.

It's important to note the three have not been charged in the shooting, but police say they were nearby the club that morning and led police on the chase. 

Officials say Church was the driver that tried to run over a deputy during the chase and was shot in the stomach by that deputy.

18-year-old Stef'an Strawder and 14-year-old Sean Archilles both lost their lives in the shooting. 

Church will be in court at 8:30 a.m.
