After the June 10th homicide in Orlando, FL, the Orange County Medical Examiner's office stated that Grimmie, 22, died from gunshot wounds to the head and chest.

Her killer, Kevin Loibl, died from a self-inflected gunshot wound to the head.

The report, obtained by Us Weekly, states the following:

“In consideration of the circumstances surrounding the death, and after examination of the body, toxicology analysis, and review of the available medical records, it is in my opinion that the death of Christina Grimmie, a 22-year-old white female witnessed to have been shot by another and subsequently transported to the hospital, is the result of gunshot wounds of the head and chest,” the medical examiner's report read.

“The manner of death is homicide.”

Loibl approached Grimmie, who was signing merchandise after a performance.  The Florida native shot Grimmie, and was then tackled to the ground by her brother, Marcus.  

During the struggle, Loibl shot himself.

Grimmie was taken to a local hospital, where she later died.

Some of Hollywood's biggest stars revealed their heartbreak at learning of the New Jersey native's death.  

A few days after the murder, Selena Gomez broke down while speaking about Grimmie during her concert in Miami.

"When she was 14, we met her. My parents and I signed her,” Gomez revealed.

“And one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her. It’s not about her religion, and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith.

"And I don’t really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”

Adam Levine, who worked closely with her on NBC's The Voice, paid for Grimmie's funeral, which took place in New Jersey on June 17th.
