Singer Christina Grimmie, a former contestant on  NBC's "The Voice," was pronounced dead just hours after a gunman shot her following a concert performance in Florida.

Orlando, Florida police say a man, armed with two guns, walked up to the 22-year-old singer as she was signing autographs following the show and opened fire.

Just after the attack, Grimmie's brother tackled the assailant, who then fatally shot himself.

Grimmie was rushed to the hospital, but died a few hours later.
