Christina Grimmie's Killer Traveled to Hurt Her, Police Believe

Orlando police have given a press conference to reveal details on the death of Christina Grimmie and the man who killed the young singer.

The 22-year-old entertainer and former The Voice contestant was shot while greeting fans at her concert on Friday night (June 10). Her brother Marcus heroically tackled the gunman, who was able to free himself to commit suicide on the scene.

The suspect who shot Christina is a 27-year-old white male and was not local to Orlando. He was armed with two handguns and a hunting knife.

Police believe that the man traveled to Orlando specifically to kill Christina and that he planned on going back to his home after he committed the heinous crime. Authorities are currently looking at his phone and other electronics to see if they can find a motive, but as of now, no connection between the victim and the suspect have been found.

The name of the shooter will be released in a few hours. It is being withheld to give authorities time to search through his home and electronics.

    It was kinda random to target her specifically, unless the two had connection before. She was not really well known to be targeted like this. I think this is just some insane guy.

    clearly he was insane to target anyone…

    She has been around for a while now, actually. On YouTube and ‘The Voice’, and if you get through to some person on TV or the Internet, they can be obsessed with literally anyone, and it seems this guy was probably creepily obsessed with Christina Grimmie.

    Rest in peace, Christina Grimme! <3
