A broken brake line or hose would cause an immediate loss of your brake pedal. Meaning, it would go straight to the floor and the car would not stop. You would also see the fluid on the ground.

Shaking is usually caused by warped rotors or drums.

The grinding you were hearing is probably just that the brakes are worn down to nothing- metal on metal as they say. This will also cause the shaking.

The pop sound could have been from whatever was grinding finally breaking. Possibly the front caliper piston if it was grinding on the rotor that bad.

Get it checked and DO NOT DRIVE IT !
