Four arrested on drug and weapons charges in Breaux Bridge

St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested four young men – three from Lafayette and one from New Iberia – after gunfire on Zin Zin Road.
At about 11:30 Saturday night, deputies were called to a location near C. Huval Road, and called in help from Louisiana State Police, Breaux Bridge Police, Henderson Police and St. Martinville Police to disburse a large crowd of people and vehicles, a spokeswoman said.
While they were clearing the crowd, gunshots were heard, the spokeswoman said. As officers were investigating, more shots were fired into the crowd of law enforcement and people who were leaving the scene, she said.
 
The investigation turned up a description of the suspected shooter’s vehicle, and a short time later deputies found the suspect vehicle. There were four people inside, and deputies found guns, illegal drugs and a large amount of money.
The four arrested were:
