‘Duck Dynasty’ star Willie Robertson had gun-shots fired into his Lousianna estate
By Trent Sell
Last week on Friday, April 24, the Robertson estate was victim to a drive-by shooting. Thankfully, no one was injured in the event and as of today April 27th, the suspect has been charged with the crime.
In the middle of the day, about 2:30 in the afternoon, the suspect drove by firing 8-10 shots into the estate. Shockingly, one of the shots went through the bedroom window of John Luke Roberston, Willie’s son. No one was injured, but John Luke lives at the estate with his wife, Mary Kate McEachern, and their newborn. The whole event was very upsetting as Willie explained to USA Today. “We were pretty shook up. It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”
The shooter was spotted in his car by neighbors and the vehicle was captured on a surveillance camera. Louisiana authorities moved quickly and made the arrest on the suspect.
Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office charged Daniel King Jr., 38, with one count of aggravated assault by a drive-by shooting. He was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center, with his bond set at $150,000. There is no information on the man’s motives.
Thankful for their safety explains Sadie Robertson
Sadie Robertson, who also lives on the property with her husband, posted to her Instagram about the nerve-wracking event. Sadie is the daughter of Willie Robertson.
