IBERIA PARISH, LA (NBC33) — A woman was shot Monday night in Iberia Parish after someone fired a gun several times at her home.
The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office was called to the home located on the 400 block of North Landry Drive on Monday, Sept. 17. When they arrived shortly after 8:00 p.m. they found the 24 year old woman suffering from a gunshot wound to her hand.
The victim told deputies that she was inside her home when someone fired several shots into the house. She was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for her injury.
Detectives believe the victim was the intended target of the shooting and that the suspect possibly knew the victim. They believe the suspect may have fled the scene on foot because witnesses did not report seeing a vehicle in the area at the time of the shooting.
