In an Instagram post, Chiu said she was sleeping inside her car when she was awakened by several gunshots.
Two men on a motorcycle shot the van carrying Cebuano actress Kim Chiu along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City early Wednesday, March 4.
Still shaken by the incident, Chiu said: “I was so scared. I don't know what to feel right now. Wala naman akong kaaway or ka atraso. Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa.”
At the end of the day, the actress is just grateful that she, her driver and her personal assistant were unscathed.
“Inisip ko na lang walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us,” she said.
While she may not be able to attend to calls or messages for the meantime, Chiu thanked everyone who has been checking up on her.
Driver Wilfred Taperla said they were waiting for the traffic light to turn green so they could turn left to C.P. Garcia Avenue from Katipunan when two men on board a motorcycle approached the right side of the vehicle and started shooting them.
He said the actress was sleeping but was roused by the shooting. No one was hurt in the incident.
Taperla said the suspects were both wearing black helmets and jackets.
The perpetrators fled towards Old Balara, Quezon City.
It was earlier reported that the actress proceeded to her taping after the incident.
