Eyewitness Speaks Out About Christina Grimmie's Shooting

An eyewitness to Christina Grimmie‘s shooting has opened up about the scary scene.

The fan, Karla Abel, spoke to People after the concert shooting, which killed Christina at her Orlando concert on Friday night (June 10).

“One minute it was super normal. The next minute, it was chaos everywhere. I’ve never been so scared. It was a really laid-back vibe in there…They had already finished performing, and she was standing by this table and signing autographs and posing for pictures. You see it all the time, and it was just a good vibe,” Karla shared.

The fan added, “Everyone was pretty happy. It wasn’t loud. But it was a lot of people talking and laughing. She was really accessible. Everyone was talking and there was a crowd around her. I didn’t see the guy come up to her. My back was to her at that moment. But suddenly there was this sound. I at first thought it was some sort of firecracker, or even something with the microphones inside. It took me a minute to figure out what it was. I think there were like six or seven shots. At least that’s what it sounded like to me. I didn’t count them.”

Karla continued, “Everything went f—- crazy. People were throwing themselves onto the ground, and covering their heads. All I could do was look at the exit doors and duck and run out. But it was terrifying. Everyone was screaming. I turned around once I got to the door, and saw so many people ducking, but I could see her feet. She wasn’t moving. I didn’t see any blood, but I think my friend did.”

Our thoughts and prayers are still with Christina‘s family.
