Christina Grimmie has been shot after her show at Plaza Live, Orlando. Now, the identity of the gunman has been identified by police.
So, who is this man?
On Saturday, June 11, Orlando Police Chief John Mina on Saturday revealed at a news conference that the shooter was Kevin James Loibl, a 27-year-old man living with his parents in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is believed to have travelled from his hometown only to kill Christina.
Police Chief Mina then added that there is no indication that Loibl and the 22-year-old singer knew each other personally. “We’re looking into that to try to find a motive for the crime.”
None had ever thought that a great multitalented girl like Christina Grimmie will be taken in such vicious way. “She was doing a meet-and-greet, just signing autographs and selling merchandise. This white male approached her and opened fire, striking her,” Mina recounted. The singer then reportedly died early Saturday morning in Orlando Regional Medical Center.
