A 19-year-old Abbeville man was arrested for an alleged July 4th shooting incident.

On July 14, 2020 at 12:00 a.m., members of the Abbeville Police Department, with assistance from the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at a residence in the 700 block of N. Lamar Street, according to Lt. Johnathan Touchet. The search warrant was in reference to a shooting incident which took place within the city limits of Abbeville on July 4, 2020.

Upon entering the property, officers observed and immediately arrested Treborian Cooper, who had active arrest warrants relating to the shooting. Officers conducted a search of the property and located two guns, a small amount of marijuana, one suspected MDMA pill and several other pills which were later determined to not be a CDS, Touchet stated.

An N.C.I.C. check was ran on both weapons and confirmed one to be stolen out of St. Martin Parish.

Cooper was arrested on the arrest warrants for illegal use of weapons, aggravated criminal damage to property and possession of a firearm in a firearm free zone.

Charges stemming from the results of the search warrant are pending at this time.

No one was injured during the shooting.
