Singer shot dead at birthday bash
A Chicago singer who appeared on the Mexican version of The Voice in 2011 has died after he was shot in an ambush while celebrating his birthday with friends. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office in the US confirmed that 45-year-old Alejandro “Jano” Fuentes died on Saturday after being shot three times in the head. Police said they had no suspects in the attack. WGN television said police were investigating whether the shooting was an attempted carjacking or a robbery. Friends of Fuentes in Chicago held a vigil and memorial for the singer at his studio in Chicago on Saturday. The attack happened less than a week after the killing of Christina Grimmie, who appeared on the US version of the show. Authorities say a man shot her while she was signing autographs after a performance in Florida.
