Police say the gunman who opened fire and murdered The Voice star Christina Grimmie on Friday came to her concert heavily armed for a targeted attack against the singer.

During a press conference on Saturday, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said the gunman was a 21-year-old white male who traveled to Orlando from another city in Florida to specifically kill Grimmie.

Mina said that the suspect did not know her, despite coming to the concert at the Plaza Live Theater armed with two handguns, extra magazines and a knife.

The 22-year-old singer was attacked while backstage around 10.30pm when she was signing autographs with the band Before You Exit at a merchandise table when the gunman fired at her.

The singer's brother, Mark, tackled him before the gunman killed himself as the shocking incident happened in front of about 60 children and teenagers.

She was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in a critical condition; one witness said he saw her bleeding from the head and being given chest compressions.
