'Duck Dynasty' star Willie Robertson's home was struck by gunfire last week, according to the latest reports. The news regarding the alleged attack at the CEO of Duck Commander was confirmed by a sheriff’s spokesman. 

The spokesperson for the Ouachita Parish Sherrif’s office, Glenn Springfield, said the witnesses of the incident saw shots being fired at Robertson's home in West Monroe. However, no one was injured in the alleged drive-by-shooting, according to NBC reports. 

The police have taken custody of Daniel King Jr on the charges of  "aggravated assault" against the 'Duck Dynasty' star. The Ouachita Parish Sherrif’s office shared a long post on Facebook on April 26, 2020, describing the details of the incident. 

The update states, "The investigation has led to the arrest of Daniel King, Jr King has been charged with 1 count of aggravated assault by drive by shooting and booked into OCC."

Describing the identity of the potential suspects, it further reads, "The vehicle driver was described as a young white male, teens or early 20's. Other occupants were in the vehicle but a description is not available. A surveillance camera photo of the alleged suspect vehicle is shown below. No one was injured in the incident."

Based on the investigation, the Sherrif department’s update further states, "Deputies responded to a report of someone shooting from a vehicle at that location at approximately 2.30 pm Friday, April 24, 2020."

Robertson told a local newspaper, Monroe News-Star, that the suspects were "just spraying bullets across my property. Nobody was outside at the time, but everybody had been out about 5 minutes before." He added, "We were pretty shook up."

Robertson’s house that was attacked is currently occupied by his wife Korie and children — John Luke, Sadie, Will, Rowdy, Bell and Rebecca. 

Willie is popular for his appearance on the A&E reality television series ‘Duck Dynasty’ in which he appears along with the rest of his family. 

Robertsons became successful from their family business Duck Commander, which deals with duck call and duck hunting and is based in Louisiana, United States.
