Late Friday night Christina Grimmie, a star of NBC’s “The Voice,” was gunned down while signing autographs after a Florida concert. She was 22. Her brother tackled the killer right after the assault, but the assailant turned the gun on himself, completing a murder-suicide.
Police identified the killer as 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl. His motive is unknown at this point, but he drove two hours to murder the young singer, and came armed with two guns and a knife, suggesting premeditation.
