Just a week after the shocking killing of singer Christina Grimme, another The Voice contestant has been brutally murdered.

In 2011, Alejandro ‘Jano’ Fuentes appeared on the Mexican version of the show, reports UniLad.

But when he celebrated his birthday with friends last Thursday, he was shot numerous times in an alleged ambush.

Fuentes reportedly got into a car with friends, before being ordered to get out by an armed stranger.

The man then allegedly shot him three times in the head in Chicago.

According to reports, police have said that they have no suspects and are still unsure if this was a blotched carjacking, robbery, or if Fuentes was a target.

Friends of Fuentes in Chicago said they were holding a vigil and memorial for the singer at his studio in Chicago.

Just last week, The Voice star, Christina Grimmie was shot dead while signing autographs in Orlando by an attacker who later killed himself.
