Christina Grimmie Dies After Being Shot at Concert

The Voice Alum Christina Grimmie Dies at 22 After Being Shot at Her Concert

Singer Christina Grimmie has died at the age of 22 after being shot at her concert in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday. Her rep confirmed the sad news, telling People, "It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord. She was shot at her show in Orlando, and unfortunately didn't survive the gun shot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning."

Orlando police also took to Twitter to confirm that Christina was one of the two people involved in the shooting, writing, "Performer Christina Grimmie was shot at concert @ Plaza Live. Grimmie's brother tackled shooter Shooter shot himself."

During a press conference, authorities revealed that the star's brother tackled the shooter to the ground before the suspect fatally shot himself. Police spokeswoman Wanda Miglio also stated that Christina was signing autographs near a merchandise table when a man armed with two guns walked up and opened fire on her.

Meanwhile, a handful of stars — including Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — have taken to social media to share heartfelt messages, and a GoFundMe page has been set up to support the singer's family.

UPDATE: On Saturday, Orlando police identified the man who shot and killed Christina as 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl from St. Petersburg, Florida. Along with the news, a picture of Kevin was also released.
