The “Duck Dynasty” stars lives and careers are featured in a new interactive museum at the Duck Commander headquarters in West Monroe called Duck Commander The Tour.

MONROE, La. – “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson said his family was the victim of a drive-by shooting Friday where eight to 10 shots were fired from the road into his estate in West Monroe.

One of the shots went through the bedroom window of the home where son John Luke Robertson lives with his wife Mary Kate McEachern and their infant child, but nobody in the family was injured.

“We were pretty shook up,” Robertson said in a Sunday interview with USA TODAY Network. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”

The property and houses on it are behind a fence and gate and located far off of the road. No arrests have been made.

Robertson said multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass by the property at least once before firing the shots at 2:33 p.m. local time.

“It was broad daylight,” Robertson said.

The reality TV and outdoors star said he believes the suspects knew they were shooting at his property.

“I’m 100% certain, but I don’t know why,” he said.

Robertson said many members of the family are living at his and wife Korie’s home during the coronavirus crisis, among them daughter Sadie Robertson, who also starred on “Dancing with the Stars,” and her new husband Christian Huff.

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

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting.

Witnesses described the vehicle as a white over brown or beige Ford F-250 with large aftermarket tires and rims.

The vehicle driver was described as a young white male in his teens or early 20s. Other occupants were in the vehicle, but a description isn’t available. 

The vehicle was captured on a surveillance camera.

Anyone in the area at the time that may have seen the vehicle or have any information as to the identity of the suspects or the vehicle owner is asked to contact OPSO at 318-329-1200.

“I’ve been in close contact with the investigators,” Robertson said. “It seems local to me, but I can’t be sure.”
