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

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.
