Christina Grimmie Shot by Armed Man After Concert in Orlando

This is Current news but is also a celeb death, feel free to move if necessary.

Quote:
A gunman opened fire at a Florida concert venue as singer Christina Grimmie signed autographs for fans after a show, killing the onetime star of The Voice before shooting and killing himself, officials have said.

A publicist for Grimmie, Heather Walsh, said in an email early on Saturday that “we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord”. The Orlando police department also confirmed on its official Twitter page that Grimmie had died.
Quote:
Police said that the 22-year-old singer had performed with the band Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando. The concert ended about 10pm, and Grimmie was shot as she signed autographs for fans at a merchandise table.

Grimmie’s brother immediately tackled the gunman, who then shot and killed himself during the struggle, police said.

The gunman was not identified, and police have not said why he attacked the singer. An investigation is continuing, but police credited the singer’s brother with preventing the gunman from hurting others.

Grimmie, who was born in New Jersey, finished third during season six of the US series of The Voice, competing on the team of Maroon 5 star Adam Levine.

She began amassing a following on YouTube as a teenager, gripping online viewers with her powerful renditions of hit songs. Several of her videos on YouTube have garnered millions of views.

When reports of Grimmie’s death first surfaced, #PrayforChristina was the top trending hashtag on Twitter. After her death was confirmed, #RIPChristina became the top trending hashtag as Grimmie’s fans took to social media to express an outpouring of grief.

The Voice paid tribute to Grimmie on its official Twitter page: “There are no words. We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice.”

Grimmie had posted a video of herself shortly before the concert was scheduled to begin, encouraging fans to come see her perform.

Levine posted a photo of himself with Grimmie on Instagram, commenting before her death was confirmed: “I’m sad, shocked and confused. We love you so much Grimmie. We are all praying hard that you can pull through this ... this just isn’t fair.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in 2014 that Grimmie moved to Los Angeles in 2012 after joining Selena Gomez on tour to focus on her singing career.

“I’m done being surprised by cool things she does. She’s very talented and she’s worked incredibly hard; it’s a dangerous combination,” her brother, Mark Grimmie, told the newspaper at the time.

Kevin James Loibl, age 27, has since been confirmed as the murderer. It was also stated he traveled to Orlando, he wasn't from the area

Quote:
He Was Armed With 2 Guns & a Hunting Knife When He Killed Grimmie While Witnesses Said She Embraced Him With Open Arms.

An earlier statement from the Orlando Police Department had said that Loibl approached Grimmie as she was signing autographs following her show with the band Before You Exit.

There were around 120 people in the theater when the shooting happened.

One witness, Destiny Rivera, told People Magazine that she was standing behind Loibl in the meet-and-greet line.

She described him as “kinda creepy.” Rivera adds, “He did look a little bit nervous, but he was by himself and he was dressed as any other concertgoer.

He didn’t seem up for a conversation whatsoever, and he was kinda – he just kept looking around and was moving his body. He also looked like he wanted to be by himself.”

She then describes it being Loibl’s turn to meet Grimmie and the singer embracing him with open arms, like she would with all of her fans.

The show ended at around 10 p.m. on June 10. The police statement reads, “The investigation is in its preliminary stages.

We know there are many questions and we will do our best to answer them as the investigation unfolds.”

Cops added that “Christina’s brother immediately tackled the suspect stopping him from causing any more harm to Christina and her fans. During the struggle, the suspect shot himself. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Loibl had “no known connection” to Grimmie. He was a native of St. Petersburg, Florida, a little over 100 miles west of Orlando.

Loibl was not registered to vote and had “almost no social media presence,” reports the Orlando Sentinel.

While Dan Erickson, a neighbor of Loibl’s family said that he seldom saw the shooter, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Erickson told the paper that Loibl’s father was “very nice.” He added, “When a tree fell down on my house, he was the first person to come over and make sure we were okay.”

The Sentinel reports that the police investigation will not focus on Loibl’s computer and phone as detectives try to put together a motive for the crime.
