Orlando Police Department has positively identified the man who walked up to singer Christina Grimmie after an Orlando concert Friday night and fatally shot her.

Police say the assailant, who had two handguns and a hunting knife on his person at the time of the crime, was 27-year-old St. Petersburg, Florida, resident Kevin James Loibl.

Grimmie's brother Mark has been hailed as a hero for immediately tackling Loibl, who then shot himself. Loibl died on the scene.

Orlando Police Department spokesperson Wanda Miglio singled Mark out, saying his actions undoubtedly stopped Loibl from harming anyone else.
