Gavin Free and Meg Turney have thanked fans for their support after reports emerged that they were forced to hide in a closet after a man fired a gun in their home.

On January 26th, Christopher Giles, described as "disturbed" by police, entered the home that Gavin and Meg share together in Austin Texas. He fired his gun, causing the couple to call the authorities. Police found messages on Giles' phone suggesting that he wanted to harm Gavin speficically. Giles was found dead in his car by the authorities, after a shootout with police as he tried to leave the couple's driveway.

While Gavin and Meg had initially not spoken out about the ordeal, today Gavin took to Twitter to express his gratitude towards fans.

"I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent indecent," Gavin tweeted. "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok. I want to give a huge thanks to Austin Police for the amazing response time."

Meg also thanks the Austin Police "for their quick response" and "ongoing support during this difficult time."
