Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame says a drive-by shooting targeted his Louisiana home Friday afternoon. Eight to 10 shots were fired into the West Monroe estate from the road, including one that went through a bedroom window, but nobody was hurt. "We were pretty shook up," Robertson said in an interview with USA Today Network cited by the Monroe News-Star. "It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property." By Sunday, a suspect had been arrested, the newspaper reports.

Daniel King Jr., 38, was booked into jail on charges of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting and criminal neglect of family. The estate is set far back from the road and is behind a fence and gate. Robertson says many members of his family are living there during the coronavirus pandemic. (More Duck Dynasty stories.)
