Jase Robertson, along with his brother Al Robertson and the household patriarch, Phil Robertson, explained what was to be an easy-going afternoon capped off with a lobster dinner that rapidly turned into a minute of fear for the family after Jase stated he was alerted by his mom, Marsha Kay Robertson, 72, that a shooting had occurred outside the compound.
Phil, 74, kicked off the conversation on Jase’s “ Unashamed” podcast on Wednesday and strolled them through his idea process as he heard the gunfire, which was familiar offered the wilderness area in which they live, but he was getting ready for a firefight.
” Well, I got the.22[caliber] in my hand and I stated inadequate weapon. I said, ‘Let me go– that seemed like at eviction up here,'” he remembered. “I stated, ‘That’s where it seems like they are. So I stated, well, let me just get up here and get that AR and I’ll go up there.”
The elder Robertson stated he hesitated about making the rash decision to investigate and return fire.
” However then I stopped. I stated, ‘Wait a minute, I’m behind a locked gate. If they crash eviction, they’ll be here in just a bit,” he stated. “I said, ‘[If] I increase there and it’s a lot of drunk teens shooting at the indications, shooting my gate [and] I get the AR and eliminate them all– I most likely would end up on the incorrect side of this thing.’ They’re not at my house. They are on the side of the road, and a lot of intoxicated teenagers who consumed too much beer and [who are] someone’s kids. And I’m sitting there and I eliminate all of them. I resemble, ‘That simply will not play well.'”
Phil stated he later on examined the damage and found small-caliber bullet holes in the side of his residential or commercial property’s gate that appeared to be fresh.
Daniel King Jr. was booked into a correctional center on Monday after 2 homes in West Monroe were struck by shooting on Friday afternoon, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post No one was hurt in the shooting, authorities said.
Jase went on to thank local police for their quick investigative work.
” I need to actually provide our authorities and law enforcement 2 thumbs up because, within 48 hours, they have a suspect that they have actually apprehended,” he stated before recounting where he was when the incident happened.
” I’m at this remains in the middle of the day when this happened and it’s Friday, gorgeous day, the sun is shining and I’m taken a nap at 2: 30 in the afternoon on my couch,” Jase described. “We’re quarantine living. I usually sleep around that location.”
” So I hear something– due to the fact that really few things wake me up. Gunshots generally wake me up,” he continued to his sibling and daddy. “But I was kind of like you, even though I’m in town, I’m in a gated neighborhood. The majority of individuals in my neighborhood, they’re my household. So I’m like, ‘OK.’ My pet dog barked. So I’m like, ‘What was that? I don’t know.'”
Al Robertson quickly jumped in including, “And we’re not in the city limits where we live, however we’re pretty close. We’re close. But simply put, we do hear some shooting from time to time. The refuge is ideal behind us, you know.”
Jase stated he felt the sound was “strange” however eventually returned to sleep.
” Then my phone starts ringing. Well, when I address my phone, things changed because it was Kay, my mother, and she’s like– here’s what she said– but her voice, because you know how Ms. Kay can be, she can be, you understand, embellish and overemphasize like many of the Robertsons … But the tone and her voice, I understood what she was stating held true. But she said people have shot Willie’s house. They have actually shot John Luke’s house. The authorities are on their method.”

Jase said given the truth this was his very first time experiencing anything like a drive-by shooting, he wished to share the painful moment with his listeners.
” You got to remember when you look at something in hindsight, it makes good sense. That’s why I thought I would share this was my very first experience with, you understand, I hear gunshots now I get the call. She stated, ‘Well, what do you do? Because you got to remember, I was just asleep,” he explained.
” So I had a rifle and a shotgun within 10 seconds in both hands” Jase pushed noting that he had not gotten the full report from his mother due to the fact that he hung up on her in a panic.
” Due to the fact that what I’m thinking [is] I require some weapons since I’m believing house-to-house. I was doing it in my head. I didn’t understand if the guy is on foot. I do not understand. That’s all I got,” he said. “So I get my weapons and I’m like, ‘Where’s my household?’ Therefore I do a quick search of the house and I see no one. And so I look outside, naturally, I’m searching for opponent or my family.”
He continued: “Well Missy, she’s in the yard simply whatever– gardening. Therefore I opened the door, which I didn’t understand how I look. I have 2 guns and I stated, ‘Get in the home now.’ And she stated, ‘I think I just heard some gunshots,’ which is what she said. But then more sternly, I stated, ‘Get in the house now.’ I frightened her.
Jase said he justified in his mind the very best approach to take and just made a judgment call similar to Phil’s that “I’m not going to sit here.”
” In my mind– [I have] a live risk here. So I believed, ‘You know what? I’m not going to be a sitting duck. I indicate, if I go down– I’m repaired to go appearance here.’ So I sort of went through a process in my mind, ‘OK, I may need to shoot somebody. I’m great with that.”
Jase explained how he felt in the moment comparing the idea of searching enemies to searching deer.
” I was taking a look at things since I realize the majority of people believe when they go deer hunting, they head out in the woods– people who do not deer hunt much, they’re searching for deer. Well, you’re not gon na see them because they see you,” he said. “And so, you look for things out of location.”
” So I remember, I looked at the wind since I thought if I have to utilize a rifle, I wish to see which method the wind’s going,” he included. “And I really looked down at my hand to see if it was shaking and it wasn’t, which I thought, ‘Well, that’s excellent.'”
Phil leapt in adding, “The distinction between you and me is when I got word, I was within arm’s reach of an AR-15 and it’s that method at all times,” to which Jase responded, “I understand it, Phil. I utilized to believe you were paranoid, now, you were prepared. You were right.”
Jase forged on with his recollection of occasions.

” So I go out and I do an appearance of the entire property and I resemble, ‘He’s not here and he’s not coming,'” Jase stated. “So then when I returned in, Well, it was just Karina and [wife] Missy[Robertson] And I’m like, well where’s Mia?”
Jase described the specific frenzy as a “anxiety attack minute” when his wife notified him his children had stepped away to the shop.
“[Missy] is like, ‘Well, she went to Dollar General,’ however Dollar General, where it lies, is not genuine far from where the shooting occurred,” stated Jase. “So now I resemble, ‘Well, how long ago did she leave?’ Thirty minutes? It takes five.”
Jase said he right away jumped in his truck but stated he didn’t wish to leave his wife and their embraced daughter from Nicaragua, Karina, without viable defense.

” So I said, ‘I’ve got the shotgun.’ And I stated, ‘Here you go. Let me offer you a fast tutorial.’ Well, I took a look at Missy and she’s never ever actually been– she’s always been afraid of weapons and never ever wanted to deal with them,” he explained. “But I took a look at her and I could see it in her eyes– she’s all ears. ‘Inform me what I require to do.'”
” However I looked at Karina and I could inform she was frightened,” said Jase. “I said, ‘Karina, I’m sorry this took place because you’re in our household however it has occurred and there are people in this world who do bad things, you know’. But we got to rise because I felt she required an inspiration.”
More in the discussion, Jase opened up about the bitterness he felt in the minute towards the alleged perpetrator because the household’s kids were also being fired at, but felt he needed to table his emotions in order to safeguard his family.
He also showed compassion towards the alleged shooter and felt the act was simply “a person stating ‘hold my beer,'” however noted that if you do an “illogical act, you’re not going to get a reasonable answer.”
He questioned whether the supposed assaulter may have lost his task and saw their house as an opportunity to target “seemingly somebody successful” but ultimately vowed to “share Jesus” with the supposed shooter.
