Christina Grimmie's brother Marcus Grimmie, who was hailed as a "hero" for attempting to apprehend the singer's killer after she was shot dead Friday, says she was his "partner in life"
A man shot and killed Christina, a 22-year-old YouTube star and The Voice finalist, while she was signing autographs at a concert in Orlando, Florida. Marcus, 23, had tackled the shooter after he opened fire and the man then took his own life.
"Christina was more than my sister," her brother, who goes by Mark, wrote on Facebook. "She was a partner in life. A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all...she was my baby sister. She loved the Lord and her family and was always there for me and I honestly don't know what I'll do without her."
