The Robertson Family, stars of the beloved TV show, “Duck Dynasty,” are counting their blessings this morning after a drive-by shooting at their home in West Monroe, LA, on Friday afternoon.

“We are all safe and sound and feeling profoundly grateful for God’s protection over us!” Korie Robertson wrote on Instagram Sunday night, thanking fans and friends for their prayers.

“Yes, the news reports are true, we had a drive-by shooting at our home on Friday, it was scary and dangerously close, but thanks to God no one was hurt.”

Despite the Robertson family being quarantined together in the home due to the coronavirus pandemic, no one was injured.

Willie Robertson, who was not home at the time of the incident, told USA Today that multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass the property at least once before shots were fired at 2:33 p.m. on Friday.

“It was broad daylight,” Willie said. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”

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

 

Investigators say that two residences located at the Robertson’s estate were struck by eight to 10 bullets on Friday — one of which is home to John Luke and Mary Kate Robertson, who have a 6-month-old son.

Sadie Robertson took to Instagram with her account of the incident, revealing that one of the bullets actually went through a window in John Luke and Mary Kate’s home.

“The timing of where we were at the time was crazy protection because we had all just gone inside,” Sadie wrote, saying that the whole family was pretty shaken up.

On Sunday, authorities arrested 38-year-old Daniel King Jr., in connection with the shooting. He has been charged with one count of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting.

Both Korie and Sadie said the family is taking comfort in God’s Truths, and His faithfulness.

“We have been resting on Psalm 91 and each other’s gratitude for all being okay,” Sadie wrote in her post.

Korie shared Isaiah 41:10, recalling memories of her grandmother reading it over them when they would spend the night at her house growing up.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
