22 Year Old Former ‘Voice’ Singer Christina Grimmie Dead, Shot to Death Following Orlando Concert (Update: Gunman Kills Himself)
22 year old Christina Grimmie has been shot dead following her concert in Orlando, Florida. The former NBC “The Voice” singer was shot to death while she signed autographs for fans following her concert. Grimmie was performing with the band Before You Exit at The Plaza Live on Bumby Avenue. The gunman, who was described as a 21-year-old white man, walked toward Grimmie with two guns and shot her. The unidentified gunman shot himself in a scuffle following the shooting. Sadly, Grimmie has taken to a local area hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Hours before what would be her last concert, singer Christina Grimmie jovially invited fans to see her show in central Florida in a video that she posted on social media on Friday afternoon.
Not long after, the former star of NBC’s “The Voice” would be dead — shot by a man who walked up to her after the performance in Orlando, police said.
The man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando on Friday night was not from that central Florida city, and “traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters Saturday.
The gunman — who authorities say fatally shot himself after shooting Grimmie — was a 21-year-old white man, and had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, Mina said.
REST IN PEACE
At some point during the interaction with fans, the gunman, who was described as a 21-year-old white man, walked toward Grimmie with two guns and shot her.
At a news conference Saturday, police said the gunman was not from the area. They said he was carrying two extra magazines of ammunition and a hunting knife.
Police said Grimmie’s brother immediately tackled the assailant, and during the subsequent struggle, he shot himself.
The 27-year-old man, whose name police did not release, travelled to The Plaza Live theater with two small-caliber handguns Friday night. He walked up to Grimmie, who was signing autographs after the show, and shot her at about 10:30 p.m., Police Chief John Mina said. Her brother immediately tackled the suspect and the man shot himself at the scene.
The man came to Orlando from another city in Florida with the intention of killing Grimmie, Mina said. He declined to say which city.
Mina said no car was found at the venue and police believe the man arranged transportation to and from the venue. No detail was given about how he originally arrived in Orlando.

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS WORLD COMING TO … AND LIBS THINK DODGE BALL IS DANGEROUS.
A Dayton elementary school, female, 2nd grade student was stabbed Friday on the playground at her school in Dayton, Ohio. The incident took place at the World of Wonder PreK-8 school at 4411 Oakridge Drive. The 7 year old female student suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Dayton Children’s Hospital. The suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, and between 18 to 20 years of age. He was wearing athletic shorts, sweatshirt, and an orange T-shirt.
My first questions is, in this day and age, how does anyone just walk onto a play ground when kids are at recess? One would think that schools would have measures in place to prevent these types of things. Do we never learn? Listen to the confusion in the video below of the 911 call. Damn, you would think a sccool would have a more organized standard operation than this.
A Dayton elementary school student was stabbed on the playground Friday afternoon by an adult, school officials say.
The second-grade student was on the playground of the World of Wonder school on Oakridge Drive in the city’s Residence Park neighborhood, WHIO reports.
The incident occurred during recess, and the adult male who stabbed the girl trespassed on school property, the Dayton Daily News reports. It’s unclear if he is in police custody.
School officials found the girl face down on the playground, according to the Dayton Daily News.
The preliminary investigation suggests that a male walked onto the playground about 1:30 p.m. and stabbed the girl, then left the area headed toward Kammer Avenue.
“A man stabbed somebody,” a school secretary told 9-1-1 dispatchers. “They stabbed them on the playground.”
During the same call, another employee is heard telling the secretary how the victim was doing.
“She’s laying face down and the police are here,” the employee said.
The school was placed on lockdown. Students were dismissed just before 4 p.m.
Principal LaDawn Mims-Morrow, in a letter sent to families of World of Wonder students, said, “a trespasser entered our playground during recess today and assaulted one of our students. The incident is being actively investigated by Dayton police, who are pursuing a lead.
Virginia Gov. McAuliffe Restores voting rights for 206K Ex-Violent & Nonviolent Felons with a Pen to Boost Democrat Votes for Hillary Clinton
UNREAL, DEMOCRATS NEED FELON VOTE TO WIN ELECTIONS …
Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons. Sorry to be so cynical that a democrat would pull such a pandering move during a presidential year. Imagine that, Democrats pandering to the rapist and child sex offender. SICK!!! Really, passing this BS off as a way of rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power. Maybe its Gov. Terry McAuliffe who is the felon who needs to be imprisoned.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power.
The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.
The governor’s order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday, even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none has done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.
