Christina Grimmie's Brother Hailed as Hero for Tackling Shooter

Christina Grimmie‘s brother Mark is being hailed as a hero for tackling the shooter that devastatingly killed his sister after her concert on Friday (June 10) in Orlando, Fla.

The 22-year-old singer had finished her show and went to meet fans outside of the venue when a man walked up to her and opened fire. Mark tackled the man, but the gunman was able to free himself to commit suicide on the scene.

Mark is being called a hero as he prevented the shooter from hurting anybody else.

We continue to keep Christina‘s family and loved ones in our thoughts during this difficult time. If you are able to help, search for the family’s GoFundMe page once it is active to contribute to their costs.
