38-year-old man in critical condition after officer-involved shooting in Iberville

IBERVILLE PARISH (WAFB) - Louisiana State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting on Jade Drive Sunday, Sept. 6.

Officers say they received a call that Shelby Joe Henson, 38, of Plaquemine had left his home with a shotgun in a Nissan Murano and that he was impaired on drugs and had threatened to shoot himself and others around 1:45 p.m.

Deputies found Henson’s vehicle traveling on Dardenne Street and attempted to stop him. When Henson refused to stop, a slow-speed chase ensued. Henson then turned onto Jade Drive where his vehicle collided with a Dodge Ram head on.

Right before Henson’s vehicle collided with the Dodge Ram, Henson fired his weapon at the driver. Henson then exited the vehicle and turned his gun to the deputies. Deputies then fired and shot Henson, police said.

Henson was transported to the hospital in critical condition. There were no other injuries.

Criminal charges are pending until the investigation is complete.
