‘Voice’ singer Christina Grimmie shot, killed at concert

Christina Grimmie, a singer known for competing on The Voice, was shot and killed Friday night after a concert in Orlando.

Grimmie, who had wrapped up the show with Before You Exit at the Plaza Live Theater, was signing autographs when a man walked up to her and shot her, Orlando Sgt. Wanda Miglio said at a news conference.

Grimmie’s brother tackled him. The suspect then shot himself.

“This should have been something that was fun and exciting,” Miglio said, “and for something like this to happen is just a tragedy.”

Grimmie was taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

#PrayforChristina started trending on Twitter as friends, fans and other singers hoped for the singer to pull through. But police announced early Saturday that she had died from her injuries.
