The death of a young artist during her meet-and-greet in Plaza Live Theater, Orlando, Florida where she was fatally shot thrice by Kevin James Loibil. This suspect carries with him 2 handguns with two extra magazines and a hunting knife. Kevin was from St. Petersburg, Florida, 27 years old. After the attacked, with Marcus Grimmie’s effort to knocked the suspect, Loibl then shot himself.
A vigil was held last June 13,2016 in New Jersey, Grimmie’s hometown particularly at Evesham Township. RIP Christina Grimmie. Such an icon at a young age and the world was shocked as to how you have left his world. We greatly missed you but with your voice and versions, we surely can’t forget you.
