Another ‘The Voice’ Singer Shot and Killed

Project Casting

Alejandro “Jano” Fuentes, former The Voice contestant, shot and killed in Chicago, Illinois.

Just days after Christina Grimmie was murdered in cold blood in Orlando, Florida, another The Voice contestant has been gunned down in Chicago.

Alejandro “Jano” Fuentes, who appeared on the Mexican version of the show in 2011, was shot three times after being ambushed with friends after celebrating his birthday. The violent attack occurred outside his Tras Bambalinas School on Chicago’s southwest side.

According to The Guardian, the tragic murder is thought to have taken place after Fuentes got into a car with his friends, before being ordered to get out by an armed stranger seconds later. The man then shot Fuentes repeatedly in the head.

Emergency vehicles were called to the scene but sadly the severity of his injuries meant it was too late to save 45-year-old Fuentes’s life.

So far, the police have no suspects in the attack and are unsure of a motive. They are considering the possibilities of a horrible carjacking or whether Fuentes himself being a target.
