Kim Chiu assured everyone she’s safe—along with her two other companions—after her van was shot eight times this morning, March 4.
In an Instagram post, the “Love Thy Woman” actress recalled what happened, saying that she was asleep inside her van when she heard gunshots.
“I don’t have any idea what really happened. Mistaken identity, I guess? Napagtripan? This is a bad joke,” Kim wrote in the caption.
“6AM on my way to taping, I was asleep inside my car then I heard several gunshots - 8 to be exact. I was shocked and asked my driver what happened, then I saw this bullet on the windshield where my head was laying. Buti nakahiga ako. Paano kung tinuloy ko magbasa ng script?” she recalled.
Kim is still in shock. She explained, “I was so scared, I don’t know what to feel right now. Wala naman akong kaaway or atraso. Why me? Kung sino man ang gumawa nito, Diyos na ang bahala sa inyong dalawa. Sana tininignan niyo muna ang plate number bago niyo pinaulanan ng bala yung kotse ko.”
“But at the end of the day, inisip ko nalang na walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us. Salamat po,” she added.
In an earlier report by ABS-CBN News, Kim was said to be on her way to the "Love Thy Woman" set when two unidentified gunmen onboard a motorcycle fired at her van.
"'Di namin napansin na may putukan sa likod. Dito pala sa amin pinatama. Kami pala ang pinapaputukan," Kim's driver Wilfredo Taperla said.
