Christina Grimmie, the 22 year old third place winner in Season 6 of The Voice in the USA, has died after being shot after her concert in Orlando earlier today.

Christina had finished her show with the band Before You Exit and was signing autographs after the show.

A gunman came up and shot her before being tackled by her brother. He then shot himself dead. Christina was rushed to nearby Orlando Medical Centre.


Christina’s publicist has announced her passing saying:

“It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord.”

“She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn’t survive the gun shot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning. If you’d like to give back to Christina’s family in her memory, please consider donating to the families GoFundMe page in their time of need.”

According to E News, “Detectives were told the suspect, who is not being identified at this time, walked toward Christina and shot her. Christina’s brother immediately tackled the suspect stopping him from causing any more harm to Christina and her fans. During the struggle, the suspect shot himself. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.”
