ORLANDO, FL – Two terrible tragedies back to back in Orlando . . .

People are still trying to wrap their head around the death of former “The Voice” contestant, Christina Grimmie.

Orlando Police identified Grimmie’s shooter as 27-year-old, Kevin James Loibl.

According to police, he traveled to Orlando specifically to kill the singer. He was carrying two guns, two loaded magazines, and a hunting knife.

After getting tackled by Grimmie’s brother, Loibl took his own life.

Loibl’s parents left a note outside the door of their home on behalf of their family. It reads: “Deepest sorrows for the loss to the family, friends and fans of the very talented, loving Christina Grimmie.”

Hopefully, the city of Orlando finds answers and peace of mind in this dark time.
