    CHICAGO —
    A man and woman were found shot to death Friday at the Chicago home of actress and singer Jennifer Hudson, police say, and multiple news outlets have reported that one of the victims is Hudson's mother.

    MyFOXChicago is reporting the second body is that of Hudson's brother.

    Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Monique Bond says the deaths appear to be the result of domestic abuse and also issued an Amber Alert.

    Authorities were looking for a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban missing from the area around the home with 7-year-old Julian King inside, Bond said. The child was also possibly a relative of Hudson, she said.

    Calls to Hudson's representative and attorney were not immediately returned.

    The Cook County medical examiner's office says officials were dispatched Friday afternoon to the house.

    Police tape blocks access to the large, white house, where a crowd has gathered outside.

    Public listings show a Jennifer Hudson and Darnell Donerson registered at the address. Hudson grew up in Chicago and her mother's name is Darnell Donerson.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    I've been following this story on a gossip site and this stuff is pretty sad.

    Her brother was the other person killed and her nephew (sister's son) was kidnapped...and a ransom has been demanded.

    Just sad...
