Associated Press Associated Press 11/06/2016

A publicist for Christina Grimmie says the US The Voice star has died after being shot at a concert venue in Florida.

Heather Walsh said in an email early on Saturday that "we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord". The Orlando Police Department also confirmed on its official Twitter page that Grimmie had died.

Police said in a news release that the 22-year-old singer's brother tackled the gunman after the shooting on Friday night. Police say the singer had performed with the band Before You Exit in Orlando. The concert ended at 10pm and Grimmie was shot as she signed autographs for fans at a merchandise table.

Grimmie finished third during season six of NBC's The Voice.
