FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jasmine Battle wanted in relation to an early morning shooting in Downtown Fort Myers has turned herself into the Fort Myers Police Department Friday night.

Battle was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, as well as shooting a weapon into a vehicle.

She was in court Saturday morning and the case was pushed back to Sunday at 8:30 AM because Battle's attorney was not present.
