Christina Grimmie Killer Identified: Kevin James Loibl, 27 Enjoyed Concert Before Murder

Edmund Wade | 20 June, 2016, 02:53

MIAMI-The gunman who fatally shot Christina Grimmie, an up-and-coming young singer who once appeared on the popular TV show "The Voice", had two handguns and a hunting knife on him at the time of the attack, US police said Saturday.

He traveled to the concert venue from another part of Florida specifically to shoot Christina Grimmie, although there was no indication he knew the singer personally, officials said.

Grimmie, a New Jersey native, finished in third place during Season 6 of "The Voice". As The Associated Press notes, "She began amassing a following on YouTube as a teenager, gripping online viewers with her powerful renditions of hit songs".

Gomez was especially close to Grimmie as her stepfather Brian Teefey served as Grimmie's manager after he discovered the young star on YouTube.

In an earlier statement, police said Grimmie had performed with the band Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando.

When it came time for Loibl to meet Grimmie, Rivera says she greeted him with "her arms open wide ready to greet him, as she would any of her other friends with such enthusiasm". Loibl shot and killed himself after he was tackled by Grimmie's brother, Marcus.

"Her brother is a hero for saving and stopping him from not hurting anyone else", Miglio said. The police chief said the theater's security guards search bags of concertgoers when they arrive, but do not use a metal detector.

"We love you so much Grimmie", Adam Levine, who coached Grimmie on 'The Voice, ' wrote in an Instagram post Saturday morning.

"By now I'm sure many you have heard that Christina has passed away due to gunfire after a show", Marcus wrote on Saturday evening (June the 11th). "We are all praying hard that you can pull through this ... this just isn't fair".
