Alejandro “Jano” Fuentes, a former The Voice contestant in Mexico, has reportedly been shot and killed in what looks like a Chicago ambush.

This grim attack comes less than a week after the tragic murder of Christina Grimmie, also a former The Voice contestant here in the United States. Authorities say an overly obsessed fan shot her while she was signing autographs after her show in Orlando, Fla. The man then killed himself as well.

While police are still investigating any suspects in the Fuentes ambush, people took to Twitter to share their condolences with the singers friends and family.

A curse on The Voice franchise? Our deepest condolences to Fuentes’ loved ones.
