We never really know how close a call we had, until it has already happened. For local DJ Aki Chan (陈玤妤), her harrowing incident has left her shaken, and understandably so.
Earlier this morning (30th November), Aki had been turning in with her husband after a very late night. To their surprise they heard a noise at the door, not five minutes after they locked it. As it turns out, someone had taken a shot at Aki, and thankfully, missed.
The MY FUN咖来玩 DJ took to her socials around 12pm today to share the shocking event. “Guys, my house was shot (at) twice,” Aki wrote. “(I) experienced a sleepless night of horror.” According to Aki, she and her husband had gone to bed at 1.10am when they heard a loud noise from outside.
“We thought the neighbour (had) hit a car (but) there was nothing there,” Aki admitted. Apparently, her husband had then gone downstairs to check and discovered sawdust in the living room. To their horror, there was something resembling a bullet on the floor. “There (was) also a hole in (our) wooden door,” Aki said. Concerned, they attempted to check the rest of the house and found another hole in the wall of their garage.
The couple were quick to contact the police to investigate the area. “I never thought the CSI would appear in my house,” Aki later joked. However, at the time, they simply watched the investigators check their house for clues and evidence.
Aki and her husband had reportedly checked their CCTV and found no vehicles or people outside their house at the time of the incident. As such, they assumed the bullet had been shot from a mountainous area behind their house. However, the police initially dismissed the speculation, claiming the bullet had to have been fired at close range to cause immense damage. After all, it had pierced the door and wall.
But, around 5am, after thorough investigation, the police agreed with the theory. As such, they searched the back area around 8am with canines. They then discovered “suspicious weapons abandoned on the ground”. Police reportedly stated they looked like homemade guns. Currently, the case is still under investigation.
“We live alone, and (we don’t have a large) social circle,” Aki stated. The local DJ also said with certainty that they had not offended nor had financial disputes with anyone. However, the police have supposedly told the couple that being shot at twice could not be a mistake.
Aki shared that she did think about living elsewhere temporarily. But, as her in-laws live next door, she and her husband aren’t too keen on the idea. However, Aki is concerned as to who the perpetrators were targeting. For now, they are waiting for more information from the police.
Aki herself has gone back to her life and work, but is still heavily affected by the situation. “If I locked the door five minutes later, I might have gotten (shot),” she said. For now, Aki hopes if anyone in her area spots anyone suspicious, they will tell the police.
