Two people were shot in New Iberia today, and Seargeant Daesha Hughes says three people were arrested after police had to break into one of the homes.

Initially, police got a call about a shooting in the 700 block of Mixon Street. When they got to the home, neighbors then told them that a child in another home had been shot as well. Because no one would answer the door, they had to break it down to get in there to the injured person. It was not a child that was injured but another man.

Hughes says both of the victims are being treated for moderate injuries. Officers were kept busy by all of the things they found in the home including the following:

  • Six weapons
  • Around eleven pounds of marijuana
  • $1,440 in cash

Officers found the items after executing a search warrant for the home where they had to break down the door.

The three men arrested were Shannon Phillips, Nakaven Chavalier, and Kendra Randall. While all three of the men were booked into the Iberia Parish Jail, officials say that Phillips has since bonded out.

Here are the charges that each man is facing:
