Orlando police believe Loibl – who is from St. Petersburg, Florida – traveled to Grimmie’s concert in Orlando Friday night specifically to shoot her. He allegedly arrived armed with two handguns and a hunting knife. 

Loibl allegedly opened fire on Grimmie during a meet and greet with The Voice alum after the show. Her brother, Marcus, tackled Loibl to the ground, and Loibl then allegedly killed himself. Police say Grimmie died from her gunshot wounds. 
Police said in a Saturday morning press conference that he likely was a deranged fan. 

“That would be speculation, but that’s what it’s looking like,” said Orlando police chief John Mina. 

“There’s no indication that he knew her, we’re looking into that to try and find a motive for the crime.” 

Mina said they were looking into his phone and computer for further information.

Mina also praised Marcus for tackling Loibl, as he may have harmed others. 

“Very heroic actions by Marcus to jump in, and definitely could have prevented further loss of life,” Mina said.

Selena Gomez has expressed sadness following her friend’s demise saying “she was a partner”.

Selena’s dad opened a gofundme account for Christina earlier.
