A YouTube star was injured at an Orlando concert when an unidentified gunman opened fire at her and then shot himself. Attendees at the city’s The Plaza Live first reported a shooter just before 10:24 p.m. on Friday night, when boy band Before You Exit and Christina Grimmie were slated to perform.
Police identified the wounded victim as Grimmie, a 22-year-old singer who finished third on The Voice in 2014.
The show ended at 10 p.m. and the violence erupted afterwards during a meet and greet between the artists and fans, many of whom are in their early or mid-teens.
After opening fire at Grimmie, the gunman was tackled by her brother and then shot himself during the ensuing struggle, police officers say.
