The suspect has been accused of shooting at John Luke’s Louisiana estate eight to 10 times at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 24. One shot went through a bedroom window, although nobody was injured.

John Luke, Mary Kate, 23, and their son were home at the time of the incident. His mother, Korie Robertson, sister Sadie Robertson and brother-in-law Christian Huff were also there.

“We were pretty shook up,” patriarch Willie Robertson, who was out shopping at the time of the shooting, told USA Today on Sunday, April 26. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”

Sadie, 22, added on her Instagram page, “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.”
