This just in, pop star and popular contestant on NBC’s “The Voice” Christina Grimmie was gunned down by a deranged fan after a performance.
Hours before what would be her last concert, singer Christina Grimmie jovially invited fans to see her show in central Florida in a video that she posted on social media on Friday afternoon.
Not long after, the former star of NBC’s “The Voice” would be dead — shot by a man who walked up to her after the performance in Orlando, police said.
The man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando on Friday night was not from that central Florida city, and “traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters Saturday.
The gunman — who authorities say fatally shot himself after shooting Grimmie — was a 21-year-old white man, and had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, Mina said.
Please pray for Christina’s family and fans during this trying time. We might never truly know what drove this man to kill her, but I hope he is being eternally punished for this sickening crime.
