Entertainment – Singer Christina Grimmie shot in Orlando


Christina Grimme, a 22-year-old singer who rose to fame on NBC’s “The Voice,” was shot and killed late Friday evening. Grimmie was signing autographs for fans after her show at The Plaza Live theater in Orlando with the band Before You Exit when 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl shot her. Loibl fatally shot himself after Marcus Grimmie, Christina’s brother, tackled him. Police say Marcus’ actions may have saved the 120 people who were at the meet-and-greet at the time of the attack. Christina Grimmie was rushed to the hospital, where she later died. According to police, Grimmie’s killer traveled to Orlando with the intent to attack her. Marcus paid tribute to his sister in a Facebook post, saying, “Christina was more than my sister. She was a partner in life,” he posted. ” A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all…she was my baby sister.”
