Vigil Held in Memory of Hudson Family Shooting Victims

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) _ Neighbors and well-wishers keep bringing stuffed
animals and other items to a makeshift memorial outside the Chicago
home where singer-actress Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother were killed.

Monday night, there was a candle light vigil. Hundreds gathered on
the same day police found the body of Hudson's 7-year-old nephew.
Julian King's body was left in the back of a SUV.

Those gathered for the vigil sang, held hands and cried in the cold.

One neighbor says the vigil was a show of support from the community for Hudson and her family.

Chicago police say the boy, like his grandmother and uncle, had been shot. A motive remains unclear. One police official says this ``wasn't a case of a stranger-type homicide.''
