Sadie Robertson of reality TV series Duck Dynasty assured fans on her Instagram account that everyone in her family is safe. She posted the photo following a drive-by shooting on Friday.
Sadie Robertson wrote in the caption that the scary event “shook” them all up. However, she is thankful that no one was outside at the time of shooting.
It was also all in the timing as she noted that they had all just gone inside just minutes before the culprits sprayed the family’s estate with bullets.
She also revealed that the scariest part was when one of the bullets flew through the bedroom window of her brother John Luke’s house. Her brother lives with his wife Mary Kate McEachern and infant child.
She ended her message with gratitude for the divine protection they have received and for the prayers for her family.

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.
Suspect of shooting arrested
According to USA Today, an arrest has already been made for the drive-by shooting. Louisiana authorities arrested a 38-year old man named Daniel King Jr. He was charged with aggravated assault and criminal neglect with bond set at $150,000.
The incident occurred in the 3300 block of Arkansas Road in West Monroe, Louisiana, which is the Robertson’s property. The police force was quick to respond after the report of shooting from a Ford truck was made.
The suspect was arrested after an image of the truck from surveillance cameras circulated. Witnesses claim that there were other people inside the truck.
But according to Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office, there are no arrests or additional charges pending at the moment.
Everyone was at home except for the family patriarch Willie Robertson at the time of shooting because of the imposed quarantine. Willie said that he gone to the store when the assault happened.
He also said that there were about eight to 10 bullets with the two hitting the houses inside the property.
Grateful to be all safe
There is no information yet on the reason of the shooting but Willie’s wife, Korie Robertson, wrote in her Instagram that it was a scary and dangerously close encounter. She also credits God’s protection for keeping them all safe.
She wrote: “We are all safe and sound and feeling profoundly grateful for God’s protection over us!”
