Two years before he lost his life at Club Blu, Sean Archilles walked the streets of his community with a positive message during a rally.

He told Four in Your Corner all he wanted was to stop the violence.

Archilles held up a hot pink sign that read "Justice for Andrew Faust." The rally was just after five-year-old Faust was killed in a drive-by shooting in Dunbar.

Archilles and his friends shouted the message "Stop the violence, break the silence."

He was just 12-years-old the time, and he never got to see that message ring true.

Two years later, at 14-years-old, Archilles would die in another senseless shooting at Club Blu.

Stef'an Strawder, 18, was also killed.

Friday, 33-year-old Jazmin Barron was arrested, facing  gun-related charges in the shooting.

"One of the firearms that was recovered after the shooting at Club Blu was purchased by Ms. Barron," ATF Supervisor Michael Coad said.

Shell casings matching Barron's gun were sprinkled throughout the scene.

Barron is charged with falsifying the forms used to buy the gun from Gunsmome and Lead in Lehigh Acres by lying about her address.

ATF said they're not sure if Barron is directly involved in the shooting.

"ATF has a slogan: Don't lie for the other guy. This is where we have individuals that tell somebody, or have somebody go into a gun dealer, or license and purchase a firearm, not necessarily for them, but for the person on the outside," Coad said.

Barron was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.

No one answered the door when Four in Your Corner's Lisa Greenberg stopped by.

Law enforcement is urging anyone considering buying a gun for someone else to remember the goal Archilles was trying to achieve for his community.

"I don't want no violence in the neighborhood. There's too much violence. I want that to stop," Archilles said.

ATF said the gun shop is supposed to verify information used to buy a gun, and they're investigating whether or not Gunsmoke and Lead, where Barron bought the gun used in the shooting, has any fault.
