On Friday (June 10), Grimmie, a former contestant on NBC’s “The Voice”, was shot and killed following her performance in Orlando, Florida. The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Kevin Loibl of St. Petersburg, Florida, didn’t appear to know Christina personally and is believed to have traveled to Orlando specifically to attack her and then fatally shot himself.
