Christina Grimmie - Crime scene location.

This is the location where American singer and YouTuber Christina Grimmie was killed.

On June 10th, 2016, an obsessed fan named Kevin Loibl murdered Grimmie while she was signing autographs at "The Plaza Live" theater in Orlando, Florida.

That evening, Loibl patiently queued up with other fans to meet the YouTube sensation. Once it was his turn, he walked over to the singer and didn't say anything. Sensing that he might be shy, Christina held out her arms and offered him a hug.

However, at that point, Loibl pulled out a pistol and opened fire.

Christina was shot once in the head and twice in the chest before her brother, Mark Grimmie, managed to tackle the gunman to the floor.

After Mark wrestled the weapon out of his hand, Loibl managed to break free and pull out a second pistol.

In that brief moment, Mark believed that he was going to die. However, Loibl immediately put the gun up to his own head and committed suicide.

Following the shooting, Christina was rushed to the Orlando Regional Medical Center on West Underwood Street. Roughly 30 minutes later, the 22-year-old was pronounced dead.

That evening, Christina Grimmie performed a number of songs at the venue. Her last song was a cover of "Let It Go" by James Bay.

After the show, she met with fans and signed autographs at a booth in the back of the theater.

According to one attendee, the security team was focused on stopping fans from bringing food and drinks into the event. Furthermore, they did not have any metal detectors.

As a result, Kevin Loibl was able to sneak two pistols into the building.

The man pictured in the inset image on the left is 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl, who opened fire on the singer shortly before killing himself.

According to his coworkers, the St. Petersburg native became obsessed with the YouTube star after he watched one of her videos in 2015.

As his obsession worsened, he started to believe that he could become her boyfriend.

In an attempt to achieve this, Loibl went through great lengths to make himself appear more physically attractive. In a short period of time, he lost weight, paid for a hair transplant and underwent laser eye surgery. He also had his teeth whitened.

His decision to travel to Orlando and murder Grimmie remains somewhat of a mystery.

The most likely explanation is that he came to the realization that a relationship with the up-and-coming star was not going to happen. If this was the case, then he may have reasoned that no one else was allowed to "have her".
