Christina Grimmie, a singer-songwriter from season six of The Voice, was shot and killed at a concert last night. She was just 22.
According to Forbes, Grimmie was on tour with pop-punk band Before You Exit, and the show had ended at the time of the incident. According to police statements made to the media at the scene, a man walked up to the singer, who was meeting fans and signing autographs at the time, and shot her point blank. The singer’s brother then tackled the man to the ground, where he shot and killed himself. Grimmie was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where she was confirmed dead by the Orlando Police Department just a few hours later. At this point in time, there are still few details, and the identity of the shooter, as well as his relationship to Grimmie, has not been released.
This world is crazy. I wonder what her affliation was with this guy to make him just shoot her point blank.
