Christina Grimmie Dead at 22 After Concert Shooting, Rep Confirms

Christina Grimmie has passed away after being shot at her concert on Friday (June 10) in Orlando, Fla.

The 22-year-old singer and The Voice contestant died due to complications from her injuries, a rep confirmed to JustJared.com.

“It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord. She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn’t survive the gun shot wounds,” the rep wrote. “We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning. If you’d like to give back to Christina’s family in her memory, please consider donating to the families GoFundMe page in their time of need. https://www.gofundme.com/christinagrimmie.”

Christina was shot by a gunman outside of the concert venue while trying to greet her fans. Her brother tackled the shooter, but the man shot himself to death on the scene.

    I can’t believe — they created gofundme in a minute after the death of a daughter.

    Disgusting. Is it all what her family thinking about now?

    What about gun control in USA?

    No, we need our guns. Gun make us safe.

  • lolo

    Hilary is strongest of ALL on gun control. Read about it. It’s a top reason I’m voting for her. This is truly tragic😔 #rip

  • Lj Jones

    The devil (illuminati) is working overtime lately in the entertainment industry JESUS IS LORD

    White trash I’m sure

  • Cassie Forcier

    If you clicked on it you’d see it’s no a working link. Which means if it were ever there it was faked. Don’t believe everything you read.

  • Cassie Forcier

    Wait….so u think a criminal who has every intention on killing someone is gonna walk in a store to buy a gun? And then say…”oh! Guns are illegal! Well crap there goes that idea!”
    Unfortunately no…that’s not how it happens :-(

  • Joher

    I’m speechless, how is it possible that these kind of people to exist? Why would you take someone’s life away just like that? I’m really sorry that this happened and the worst part is that it could happen to anyone, we need a solution, we need to do something, she’s not the first one and sadly I don’t think she’ll be the last. Rest in peace.

  • lolo

    Honey, I Have lived many countries in my years- ain’t nobody in the developed world got a problem like we got. Were this Canada, this poor young soul would still be alive. #fact Let’s leave her out of this. It’s a tragedy. I just don’t want to see it happen again.

  • lolo

    Ps. Sounds like if the attacker had a knife, Brother would have been all over him in a flash – you need to live a little more, read a little more, and maybe get out of your conservative roots

  • Sue66

    That’s kinda like saying “a drunk isn’t gonna say Oh! Drunk driving is illegal! Well crap, I’ll take a cab!” Does that mean we shouldn’t at least make an effort to keep them off the road? Every law gets broken. That’s why we have criminal courts and prisons. Your argument is that any law will be broken so there’s no sense in having any laws.

  • Myst *:・゚✧

    This is just not right. She don’t deserve this.
    She was such a very talented woman, and an inspiring person, so sad that she left this world so suddenly.

  • marsshmallow

    How do people just randomly shoot at singers?? Where are the securities? Why is her brother the only one taking action? Is this consider assasination? RiP to Christina.

  • Anna

    If you actually go to the link, you can see it was created by her management team, to help the family take their time to grieve and not think about financial matters. Stop writing troll comments when you don’t even know the proper facts.

  • Anna

    Stop being so insensitive.

  • Stephanie C

    the more guns are easy available the more people buy them. end of story. fix your problems america.

  • Cruizin1960

    Well, good for you. However, if Hillary got her way, she would ultimately kill the 2nd Amendment and with it our right to self defense. Please tell me how you propose to defend yourself or your family if an armed person invades your home? If you wait for the police….you are DEAD. So please, inform me.

  • Cruizin1960

    Really? Because no one can ever get a gun in Canada?

  • Sabrina

    Shut up.

  • Jhandu Balm

    More Americans kill fellow Americans with guns each year than any outsiders or muslim terrorists. And yet, Americans are paranoid of ISIS and others! US has robust military and defense capabilities, yet can’t protect their own citizens from internal attacks! What a shame! The terrorists wud be wondering that why they need to do anything or blow themselves up (suicide bombing) when the Americans are killing Americans themselves

  • Hunter Vance

    Sue you can’t defend yourself against a drunk driver by also being a drunk driver. So your point is invalid.

  • kevin ting

    Not only in Canada, go and see other countries. Yes, there are still bad things happen in gun controlled countries. But no place like States, so easy to access guns.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I don’t think she could afford a bodyguard.
    Police was at event.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    In a HOUR after death.

  • marsshmallow

    I remember going to a concert (carrie underwood’s) before she was not really known and even then people check what we bring, some concerts don’t even allow water bottles in fear people would throw bottle or water at the singers

  • Clovis

    Oh god. That’s just awful. RIP, bright young lady.

  • Clovis

    Just awful.

  • disqus_ZQe7rsmVSv

    YHWH tell you that?

  • disqus_ZQe7rsmVSv

    It’s obviously a hit. For PR.

  • Revengefan0101

    They should have had metal detectors at the venue.

  • Gina

    This is freakin’ shocking

  • Sunshine Von Redstone

    ….making sure the gun nuts make this about them not the victim. Disgusting filth, indeed.

    racist

  • Karin

    I fail to see what this horribleTragedy has to do with terrorists. All killings are equally despicable. there are People killing Each other all over the world every Day, with mass Killings, other killings, which is a Tragedy also. You also don’t need a gun to kill, despicable people that kill in the name of religion, mentally ill People, obsessed People , phyycopaths and so on kill People With whatever Weapons they can find.Weapons don’t wield themselves.I do believe also, that there needs to be a lot tougher gun control and screening process and loopholes closed.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Terrible. God bless her soul.
    And shame on her killer. To deprive a 22 year old of her life is disgusting.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I think it was an open venue.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Hilary won’t do anything about it. Niether has the idiot we have in charge currently either. They constantly talk about doing it but it never gets done.
    I hope Killary won’t stoop low and use this poor girl’s death to get more votes.

  • Esther Rogers

    OMGOSH. This is too horrible for words. :’( what is this world coming too.
