Deputies in Iberia Parish are investigating the shooting-death of a man who was confined to a wheelchair. Family members identify the victim as 57 year old Robert Butler. He was found dead of several gunshot wounds in his home on Angie Street in New Iberia, just before 1:00 p.m. Tuesday.
Witnesses who were inside Butler's home at the time of shooting are being questioned, but so far no arrests have been made. Deputies spent much of the day canvassing the neighborhood, and knocking door-to-door looking for a black man in his late twenties, who was seen running away from the home.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Department.
