An arrest has been made in connection with last week’s drive-by shooting into the Louisiana estate owned by “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson.
Daniel King, Jr., 38, was charged with a count of aggravated assault by drive by shooting following the incident at Robertson’s property in West Monroe, an official with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the Daily News.
The gunfire occurred at around 2:30 p.m. local time last Friday, with a pair of residences being struck after the suspect began firing, the sheriff’s office announced.
Nobody was injured.
“We were pretty shook up,” Robertson, 48, told the USA Today Network on Sunday. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”
Robertson said eight to 10 bullets were fired during the drive-by. He said at the time that he didn’t know why his property would be targeted, but that he was "100% certain” that whoever did it knew the estate belonged to him.
“Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a white over brown or beige Ford F-250 with large aftermarket tires and rims,” the sheriff’s office said.
King was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center, with bond set at $150,000.
