Duck Dynasty star, Willie Robertson's estate in Louisiana has been hit by a flood of bullets during a terrifying drive-by shooting.

The Duck Dynasty reality TV show star was staying at the estate with various other family members when the shooting took place, although Willie Robertson was out at the time of the incident.

Robertson has said, "We were pretty shook up. It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property."

The estate, which is gated, had about eight to 10 bullets fired at it from the main road, Robertson estimates.

Shockingly, one of the bullets went through one of the bedroom windows. No one was injured in the attack though.

A West Monroe resident, named as 38-year-old Daniel King Jr. has since been arrested in connection with the drive-by. He has been charged by the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office of one count of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting and one count of criminal neglect of family. Bond has been set at $150,000.

A white over brown or beige Ford F-250 was described by witnesses, and the truck had passed by the property at least once before the shooting started.

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

Robertson's son, John Luke Robertson, and his wife, Mary Kate McEachern, and their infant child all live at the address as well.

Robertson is famed for his starring role in A&E's Duck Dynasty reality TV show series. The show peaked in 2013 when it was the most watched reality TV show in the United States. The series ended in 2017 after 11 seasons.
