Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking the public to help find a second suspect wanted in a shooting that occurred early Friday, officials said.

Austin Rashaad Jackson, 17, is wanted in an attempted first-degree murder that occurred in the 700 block of Ann Street, Lt. Jeremy Kelly said in a news release.

Jackson is the second man suspected in the shooting of an 18-year-old man after an argument at about 2:30 a.m. The victim was taken to a hospital.

Iberia investigators, hours after the shooting on Friday, arrested Kareem Jamal Wilson, 20, of New Iberia. Wilson was booked on one count of principal to attempted first-degree murder.

On Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office identified Jackson as the suspect they believe pulled the trigger.

Anyone with information on Jackson’s whereabouts may call detectives at (337) 369-3711.
