FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A woman authorities say is linked to the deadly Club Blu shootings last month will be in federal court Monday, where Jazmin Barron will appear for her arraignment on gun charges.

Monday marks 4 weeks since the deadly shooting at Club Blu in Fort Myers, with no suspects in the case and not many witnesses coming forward.

Barron is the closest person linked to the shooting thus far. She's accused of illegally buying a gun found near Club Blu. Police say that gun matched shell casings found at the scene.

Investigators say Barron lied about her address on the forms used to buy the gun. That's a felony.

The shooting July 25th killed 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Stef'an Strawder. 18 others were shot.

Agents with ATF say they're not sure if Barron was directly involved.  "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 licensee and purchase a firearm, not necessarily for them, but for the person on the outside," says ATF supervisor Michael Coad.

Police found several guns, including the one registered to Barron, a few days after the shooting near a burned car close to the club.

Barron's appearance is set for Monday morning at 10 a.m.
