‘The Voice’ star’s alleged killer traveled to target her

MIAMI: The gunman who killed singer Christina Grimmie, a former contestant on the popular TV show “The Voice,” traveled to Orlando, Florida, apparently intending to attack her, police said on Saturday. Armed with two handguns, ammunition and a hunting knife, the suspect, identified as Kevin James Loibl, shot and fatally wounded the 22-year-old at the city’s Plaza Live Theater late Friday during a meet and greet with fans. Grimmie — who had performed with the group “Before You Exit”—was rushed to the Orlando Regional Medical Center, but died of her wounds. The tragedy could have been far worse had Grimmie’s brother Marcus not tackled the suspect as he began shooting. Loibl, a 27-year-old from St, Petersburg, Florida, shot and killed himself after shooting Grimmie.
