‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Willie Robertson’s Estate Struck By Bullets In Drive-By Shooting


The Duck Dynasty clan is counting their blessing after they their estate was the target of a drive-by shooting on Friday. Willie  Robertson, who starred in the A&E reality television show for 11 seasons, shared the terrifying news in an interview with USA Today on Sunday.

“We were pretty shook up,” Willie said, adding that 8 to 10 shots were fired. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”

Robertson, his wife and several member of the Robertson family are staying at the West Monroe, Louisiana, estate. No one was injured in the shooting, but one of the shots went through a bedroom window of the home where Willie’s son John Luke lives with his wife, Mary Kate, and their baby.

The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, and Robertson believes that the suspects knew whose home they were firing on. The Robertson estate sits far off of the road and is fenced and gated. According to Robertson, multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass by the property at least once before shots were fired. The truck was described to be a “white over brown or beige Ford F-250 with large aftermarket tires and rims.”

“Nobody was outside at the time, but everybody had been out about 5 minutes before,” Robertson said. “I had just gone to the store when it happened.”

Willie’s daughter Sadie, who currently lives at the family farm with her husband Christian, posted a note of gratitude for their safety, saying:

“Hi, yes the news is true if you’ve seen it. We had someone shoot at our property. Just wanted to say we are all okay. It shook us all up of course, but we are just so thankful everyone in our family is okay. Especially after one of the bullets flew through the window of my brothers home…The timing of where we were at the time was crazy protection because we had all just gone inside. We have been resting on Psalm 91 and each other’s gratitude for all being okay ❤️ thank you for your prayers.”


The shooting is under investigation. Anyone with information about the shooting is being asked to contact the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office at 318-329-1200.
