UPDATE: (8:00) (KTVE/KARD) — In the height of a nationwide pandemic, shots struck the homes of the Robertson family, further shaking up their reality
“God was watching over us. Like I said, just a few minutes before, we were all outside; kids outside, grand kids outside, right where the bullets came through. God is good and we will keep serving him,” said Willie Robertson.
Friday afternoon around 2:30, Willie Robertson and his family became victims to a drive by shooting. Outside of the family home, nestled in the 33 hundred block of Arkansas Road in West Monroe, was were the family had just finished hanging out. Minutes later… bullets flew where they once stood.
“My son called me and said that someone had shot at the property. So I ran back over and his house had actually got hit and the bullet went through the window and it was lodged in the wall,” said Robertson.
Willie says thankfully no one was injured. However, the Duck Dynasty family says they were pretty rattled by this. Robertson says nothing like this has ever happened before and they don’t know why someone would do this.
“Yeah pretty scary, we are all mostly indoors anyway so the fact that they would drive by and shot like that. They took a chance of hitting me or someone in my family, it’s kind of scary,” said Robertson.
The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested Daniel King Jr. and charged him with one count of aggravated assault. Willie says an arrest will help bring peace and comfort to the family during a time when many things are uncertain.
“I would hate for this to happen again and God forbid someone actually gets hit with a bullet.”
