According to reports published Saturday, Chicago police are investigating whether the weapon used in the Hudson family murders had once belonged to one of the victims.

Police found the gun in a vacant lot on the city's West Side Wednesday, one block away from where officers found the body of Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, inside a parked SUV.

The Chicago Tribune reports Jason Hudson owned an identical gun that he thought was stolen from the family's home a few months ago.

A public memorial for all three victims is scheduled for Sunday 4 p.m. at the Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church.
