Just hours before she was tragically shot and killed, Christina Grimmie had a huge smile on her face as she was doing what she loved the most: performing on stage in front of her adoring fans.
On Friday night (Jun 10), the 22-year-old was shot by 27-year-old a man police later identified as Kevin james Loibl, who drove from his hometown of St. Petersburg to Orlando, Florida to commit the crime.
According to reports, Grimmie was taking pictures with fans and signing autographs after her concert at the Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida when the gunman opened fire on her. Her brother reportedly tackled the gunman, who took his own life shortly afterward. Grimmie was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead hours later.
Christina Grimmie was touring with the band Before You Exit, and video footage taken at the concert and later uploaded to YouTube shows the singer performing songs from her 2016 EP, Side A. There was also another video posted on Instagram showing Grimmie performing a cover of Drake’s “One Dance.”

I'm still in shock at what happened right in front of my friends and I last night. These young fans will never forget the terrible things they saw while simply waiting in line for an autograph and a picture thanks to the piece of shit that took the life of this beautiful young woman. Christina made it a point to meet everybody after every show. Your YouTube videos will continue to inspire so many people just as they did for me since 2008. Rest easy Christina Grimmie💙 @therealgrimmie (Video from my Snapchat a little earlier in the night)
