IPSO Deputies Investigating Two Saturday Evening New Iberia Shootings
Iberia Parish Sheriff’s deputies are investigating two Saturday evening shootings that occurred just blocks away--and moments apart--from each other.
Sheriff’s spokesman Major Wendell Raborn said deputies responded to the first shooting around 6:45 p.m. in the 500 block of Lombard Street.
When they arrived at the scene, deputies located one male victim with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was transported to a Lafayette hospital for treatment.
While still investigating at the shooting scene, deputies heard multiple gunshots nearby. Just two blocks west, deputies discovered several bullet casings in the 500 block of Johnston Street, but no victims were found. Later, an unidentified man arrived at the Iberia General Medical Center for treatment of multiple gunshot wounds.
Investigators are asking for anyone with information about these shootings to either call the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office at 369-3711 or Iberia Crime Stoppers at 364-TIPS.
