Denise Richards has spoken out following a road rage incident earlier this month, during which, she and her husband were shot at.

The actress, 51, and her husband, Aaron Phypers, were on their way to Popsicle Studio in south Los Angeles when another road user shot their vehicle after seemingly losing his patience, per TMZ.

The pair were looking for road parking when the driver behind them began shouting and attempting to squeeze past. Aaron reportedly decided to let the impatient driver through, but instead of obliging, the incident took a turn when the angry road user opened fire on the couple's vehicle - hitting the back end on the driver's side.

Thankfully, nobody was injured during the incident and the actress went on to complete a 12-hour day on set, with her husband Aaron staying throughout the day before both being accompanied back onto the freeway by an off-duty cop in order to get home.

Denise has since shared an update with her fans via Instagram, thanking her followers for their support since the incident. She said: "I want to give my sincerest thanks to all who have reached out to me and Aaron during this time.

"We are both very grateful to be safe. The love and support from all of you has been overwhelming!! We are so thankful for each and every one of you."

A source told PEOPLE: "The production company made her feel safe but they didn't file a police report. They think now that people were after the car itself because it's worth a lot of money."

Although a police report wasn't filed by the couple, the source confirms that the production company did call the police after the incident. The LAPD told PEOPLE that they have no details of the incident.

Denise and Aaron began dating in 2017 and tied the knot in 2018. The actress shares two daughters - Sam and Lola Rosa - with actor Charlie Sheen to who she was married for four years between 2002 and 2006.

TMZ also reported that on the day of the shooting, a gun safety talk took place on set. This comes in the aftermath of the tragedy on the set of Rust, where a prop gun held by actor Alec Baldwin discharged, taking the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

It's good to see Denise and Aaron doing well after the incident.
