"Duck Dynasty" Star Willie Robertson and his family survived a drive-by shooting outside his gated estate in West Monroe, Louisiana, over the weekend.
The TV star has been spending lockdown with several family members, who were outside five minutes before several shots were fired from a Ford F-250 driving past the property Friday afternoon, USA Today reported.
Nobody was injured, but a bullet did shatter a window where Robertson's son, wife and children were staying.
"We were pretty shook up," Robertson told the outlet. "It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property."
He believes the suspects knew they were targeting his house, but could not understand why. He speculated they were from the area.
"It seems local to me, but I can't be sure," Robertson said.
Witnesses reported seeing the vehicle, driven by a white male in his early 20s, pass the property at least once before the shots were fired. There were other occupants in the vehicle, but no description was available.
Robertson said his family had retreated inside minutes before the vehicle drove by. Among them was daughter Sadie Robertson, who appeared in "Dancing with the Stars," as well as her 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."
Police have launched an investigation into the matter.
