No.. You cannot close your existing connection and No need to close existing connection to delete the database.

You can run either sp_who or sp_who2 and find list of spid >50

Kill all those ids iteratively like

kill 51

Hope this helps

<< how do i close existing connection on a database. >>

Do all steps mentioned above.
Close the existing connection by closing that query window opened. (Commit / Rollback if Implicit transactions is set to ON)
And in Enterprise manager or SSMS, Right Click and Delete the database.
