“Yes I Am Safe”—Kim Chiu Updates Instagram Followers On Her Wellbeing After Shooting Incident
Gunshots were fired towards the actress’ vehicle while she, her personal assistant, and her driver were en route to a taping
This morning in Katipunan Avenue, gunshots were fired in the direction of actress Kim Chiu’s black van. She was on her way to a taping for her TV series Love Thy Woman.
Kim had apparently been sleeping inside the vehicle when the gunshots were fired, and at around 9 a.m., the actress took to Instagram to give an update on her safety.

A lot of you have been texting and calling. can’t answer right now. Thank you for checking on me. Means a lot. Yes I am safe po. I’m ok and my P.A. And my driver as well. Papa Jesus protected us. I dont have an idea what really happened, mistaken identity? I guess?? Napag tripan?.. This is a bad joke. 6am on my way to taping, I was asleep inside my car then I heard several gun shots, 8 to be exact. I was shocked and ask my driver what happened, then I saw this bullet on the windshield where my head was laying “buti nakahiga ako.” Pano kung tinuloy ko magbasa ng script?... I was so scared, I dont know what to feel right now. Wala naman akong kaaway or ka atraso. Why me?. Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa. Sana tininignan nyo muna ang plate number bago nyo paulanan ng bala yung kotse ko but at the end of the day inisip ko nalang walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us. Salamat po.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe hours after the incident, Kim couldn't hold back her tears as she recounted the unfortunate event earlier today. Watch her full interview below:
