[UPDATED] The Man Who Fatally Shot Christina Grimmie REVEALED!

This video is her favorite song.

“No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.”

Christina Grimmie, a singer and songwriter, gained recognition through her participation in the singing competition The Voice. Known for covering hit songs by contemporary pop musicians, Christina grew up in Marlton, New Jersey, attending Baptist Regional Elementary School and Cherokee High School. She was of Italian and Romanian descent.

On June 10, 2016, after the show on Friday, Grimmie was signing autographs at the Plaza Live theater when suddenly a man approached her and opened fire. Grimmie was shot three times.

The man who shot and killed Grimmie was Kevin James Loibl, 27, of St. Petersburg, Florida. Police Chief John Mina stated that the shooter had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines, and a large hunting knife.

To prevent the suspect from causing harm to Christina and her fans, Christina’s brother immediately tackled the suspect. After the incident, the suspect shot himself, and authorities pronounced him dead at the scene.

Levine also posted a throwback photo of himself with Christina, with a caption, “Behati and I are absolutely devastated and heartbroken by Christina Grimmie’s death. Our hearts go out to her family.”

Grimmie also posted a video hours before her last performance in which she invited fans to see her show.
