Willie Robertson, star of the popular TV reality show Duck Dynasty, says he and his family were the victims of a drive-by shooting last Friday, but escaped with their lives.
Reports say that Robertson’s home in West Monroe, Louisiana, was fired upon by someone driving a white and brown Ford F-250. One of the bullets crashed through the bedroom window where John Luke Robertson lives with his wife Mary Kate and their infant child.
Robertson says that several members of the family are sheltering together for support during the coronavirus scare. Still, he noted that no one was struck by any of the bullets.
“We were pretty shook up,” Willie Robertson told USA Today. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”
Robertson added that multiple witnesses saw the truck pass by the property at least once before firing the shots at 2:33 p.m.
“It was broad daylight,” Robertson said, adding that he thinks the shooter purposefully targeted his family. “I’m 100% certain, but I don’t know why.”
Police reported arresting Daniel King, Jr., 38, and charged him with the attack. King was charged with one count of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting, KIRO reported.
Korie Robertson posted about the incident in a post on Instagram.
“We are all safe and sound and feeling profoundly grateful for God’s protection over us!” she wrote. “Yes, the news reports are true, we had a drive-by shooting at our home on Friday, it was scary and dangerously close, but thanks to God no one was hurt.”

Thank you so much for all of your prayers for our family 🧡 We are all safe and sound and feeling profoundly grateful for God’s protection over us! Yes, the news reports are true, we had a drive-by shooting at our home on Friday, it was scary and dangerously close, but thanks to God no one was hurt 🙌🏻 AND today we got to participate in a drive-by birthday celebration! Crazy how life works! We honked our horns and made signs. We are alive and well, and not taking this day for granted! ⠀ ⠀ My grandmother used to read this scripture aloud every night before she went to bed, when we spent the night she would read it over us, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 God is good! Praising him today and every day!
