“The Voice” season six contestant Christina Grimmie was shot and killed Friday night (June 12) in Orlando, Florida after a concert. Grimmie’s brother tackled the 27-year-old gunman immediately after and during the struggle the gunman shot and killed himself.

Grimmie was rushed to the hospital and was pronounced dead several hours later.

Authorities claim the shooter, identified as 27-year-old Kevin Koibl drove from another city in Florida to Orlando to specifically attack Grimmie. Orlando Police Chief John Mina stated at a news conference that the suspect didn’t know Grimmie personally.

“She was doing a meet-and-greet, just signing autographs and selling merchandise. This white male approached her and opened fire, striking her,” Mina said. “We believe he came here to commit this crime.”

The 22-year-old singer from New Jersey finished third during season six of NBC’s “The Voice” in 2014, competing on the team of Maroon 5 star Adam Levine. Many celebs shared their condolences via social media over the weekend.
