The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office is working a shooting in the 900 block of Mississippi Street involving multiple victims. 

KATC has reported at least five shots fired calls in that area just this week. One of those was a fatal incident Wednesday night. This is the same block of Mississippi Street where these shooting incidents earlier this week occurred.  Investigators believed that the shooting Wednesday was a part of alleged gang activity.

Deputies say that more details will be released later tonight on the current shooting once they get the situation under control.
