Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office said they arrested Daniel King Jr. and charged him with one count of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting.


Original story: A driver in a white and brown Ford F-250 with large aftermarket rims and tires drove by Robertson’s estate at least one time before opening fire around 2:33 p.m. on Friday, the Monroe News-Star reported.

“We were pretty shook up,” Robertson told USA Today. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.”

Robertson has many family members staying with him during the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the bullets went through a bedroom window but no one was injured, the News-Star reported.

Robertson believes he was targeted.

"I'm 100% certain, but I don't know why," he told USA Today.

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

The driver was described as a white male in his late teens or early 20s. There were other occupants in the truck, but their descriptions are not available.
