‘Why are those things happening?’: Kim Chiu clueless over motive of gunmen who shot her van


Actress Kim Chiu doesn’t have any clue over the possible motive of the two gunmen who shot her van while she was on the way to her taping for afternoon serye Love Thy Woman.

The motorcycle-riding gunmen peppered the Kapamilya star’s Hyundai H350 with bullets at the corner of Katipunan and CP Garcia Avenues in Barangay UP Campus at 6:15 a.m. Luckily, she and her companions were unharmed. 

In an interview for TV Patrol, Kim realized that if she hadn’t lied down to rest, a bullet would have hit her already. 

“Kung di ako humiga, tatamaan talaga ako. Wala naman akong kasalanan. Di ko alam what’s happening,” she shared. “Di ko alam kung may kaaway ako, wala naman.”

“Natatakot lang ako. Why are those things happening?” she added.

In tears, Kim looked into the possible motive for the incident. “Nagkamali ba yung nagbaril, kung nagkamali ba siya ng sasakyan na dapat barilin. Di ko alam. I don’t mean harm to anybody. Di ko alam, Diyos na lang ang bahala sa dalawang lalaki na yun,” she said. 

When asked if she has any bad blood or misunderstandings with anyone that could cause the incident, Kim said there is none.

“Jusko, wala. Ako pa ba?” she asked.

After the traumatic experience, the 29-year-old actress said she realized how precious life is.

“Ang masasabi ko lang life is really precious kasi kahit wala kang sakit, wala kang kasamaan ng loob, kung natamaan ka ng bala siguro wala ka na,” she said.

Kim assured that her home network ABS-CBN is on top of the situation. She also sought the help of a lawyer and the Quezon City police for any CCTV footage on the incident. (READ: LOOK: An emotional Kim Chiu consoled by ABS-CBN big bosses after van shooting incident.)
