The ‘Duck Dynasty’ star believes that the gunman fired eight to 10 shots.
Also, he revealed that moments before the shooting incident happened, the family was outside. “But everybody had been out about five minutes before,” he said.
And when the family was all inside they heard the gunshots.

and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
