Christina was shot while signing autographs after a concert in the city on Friday night (10th June) following from her performance with Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida.
Orlando police chief John Mina said the gunman who shot Christina, was 26-year-old Kevin James Loibl, who came from the city of St Petersburg in Florida to confront her.
Mr Mina said Loibl did not seem to know her personally but speculated that he may have been a deranged fan.
How did Christina pass away?
Police say Liobl carried two handguns and a hunting knife and despite not knowing the singer personally, he had every intention of committing the crime.
After a struggle with the Christina’s brother Mark, Loibl had shot himself dead.
Christina was taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center in a critical condition; she died on June 11
