Manchester Police Arrest 23 Year Old Connected to Ariana Grande Concert Explosion

Police have named 22 year old, Salman Abedi, as the one who detonated the explosive.  Authorities say Abedi is a British man of Libyan origin. ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attack. Ariana Grande has suspended her world tour.
Such sad news, I still can't wrap my head around it.
Early Tuesday morning,  Greater Manchester Police confirmed they arrested a 23 year old connected to the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert.
22 people died and dozens were injured following an alleged suicide bomber at the Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester.
As concert goers were leaving the show, an explosion was heard and madness ensued. It's being reported the lone attacker set off the explosive near the box office.
Regardless, of the 22 victims...many were children.
It sickens me that these young people just wanting to see their favorite pop star were witnesses to such a tragedy.
Since the explosion, Ariana took to twitter to express her condolences to the victims. I can't imagine, how as an artist, she feels about this.

Scooter Braun, Grande's manager issued the following statement on Twitter:

Since the attack, many celebs and musicians took to social media to express their condolences.
