Authorities investigating false reported shooting in Iberia Parish


Detectives with the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s office are investigating a reported shooting where no actual shooting or incident had taken place.

On July 6th, Iberia Parish 911 Communications received a call from a man saying he had shot his girlfriend and girlfriend’s father at a home in the 6000 block of Chastant Rd. Deputies were sent to the home around 9:50 p.m. and discovered no such incident occurred.

Detectives are currently investigating the incident and believe the caller intentionally misused 911 to purposely have deputies respond to that residence. A person of interest is in custody at this time.

Detectives ask if anyone has information involving the incident to contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office at (337) 369-3711.
