"Kim Chiu, her personal assistant, and driver are all safe from the shooting incident," ABS-CBN's Jervis Manahan reported.

"Thank God Kim Chiu and her companions are unharmed," AdProm Head at ABS-CBN also confirmed.

Driver Wilfredo Taperla said 6 gunshots were fired towards their vehicle.

They were en route to a taping of her television series "Love Thy Woman" when the incident happened around 6:10 a.m. at the corner of Katipunan Avenue and CP Garcia Avenue.

"Di namin napansin na may putukan sa likod, dito pala sa amin pinatama. Kami pala ang pinapaputukan," Taperla told ABS-CBN News.

Reports added that one bullet hit the spot where the actress normally studies her drama script. Kim was sleeping and lying down in a different part of the vehicle when the vehicle was shot.

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.
