ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Orlando Police responded to a call of shots fired Friday night at the Plaza Live, located at 425 N. Bumby Ave. Upon arrival, officers found the male suspect dead with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and one victim who was gravely injured.

That victim was singer and ex-‘The Voice’ contestant Christina Grimmie, who was transported to the hospital with critical gunshot injuries but later died as a result of her injuries.

Christina Grimmie was performing with the band ‘Before You Exit’ at The Plaza Live Friday evening.

The concert ended at 10 p.m., however, band members and Christina stayed to sign autographs for fans and sell merchandise.

Detectives were told the suspect – who is not being identified at this time – walked toward Christina and shot her. Christina’s brother immediately tackled the suspect stopping him from causing any more harm to Christina and her fans. During the struggle, the suspect shot himself.
