Tragic news for singer and Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson reports TMZ.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jennifer Hudson's mother was one of two victims shot and killed in Chicago earlier today.
A neighbor tells TMZ the other victim was Jennifer's brother Jason. A cousin who lived nearby discovered the bodies.
We're told the two bodies were found dead on the scene at 2:44 PM. When the fire department arrived and discovered the bodies, police were brought in and the home was declared a crime scene.
There is also a report it may be a domestic dispute, as a 7-year-old girl is missing:
A Chicago police spokeswoman also said a 7-year-old child was reported missing, as is a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban with Illinois license plate No. X584859, from that location.
According to public records, the home is owned by Darnell Donerson, Jennifer Hudson's mother.
Jennifer Hudson is not injured, her bodyguard told the Tribune before referring all questions to a publicist.
One of the victims was a woman in her 50s who was shot in the head and the other was a 29-year-old man who was shot in the chest, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.
