    Fox News is reporting that a kidnapping of a child MAY have taken place at that location and that this was a targeted murder/ kidnapping. TMZ now reporting this also. No link except to fox news.

    It's breaking news. I'm watching Fox News and their information was coming from TMZ and WFLD Chicago. The house is on the south side of Chicago.

    This is AWFUL - I am a Chicagoland native -- this is one TOUGH neighborhood. Lot's of gang activity and murders. It was famous for having a serial killer killing prostitutes - not sure if they was ever solved either. God Bless the Hudson family!

    Apparently WGN-Chicago news showed a picture of the child. Julian King, I think. Police aren't revealing if he is related to the Hudson Family. They've issued an Amber alert and the vehicle they're looking for belongs to Jennifer's brother Jason.

    "website TMZ.com reported that a neighbor identified the other vicitm as Jennifer's brother, Jason, though there have been no official confirmations of the victims' identities. The Chicago police are searching for two suspects in the shooting, a man and a boy, and the crime was believed to have been committed around 3pm Friday afternoon. No further details were available at press time. "

    Apparently Jennifer is the youngest child, her father has already passed away, she has an older brother Jason who is a mechanic and her sister is a bus driver in Chicago..

    Police were searching for a man and 7-year-old boy. The man is known as "William," has braids in his hair, and could be driving a 1994 Chevy or a green four-door Chrysler, according to police. The boy, identified as Julian King, was wearing a tan jersey with the number 5 on it and tan slacks.

    At the presser just now on Fox, the police reported that neighbors reported shots fired at 8:00am - 9:00am today. One reporter asked about a specific man with a B initial (didn't catch the name) and said that it was already reported he was armed and dangerous. LE declined to comment on the subject saying only they wanted to find the little boy and that particular vehicle. LE said this appears to be a domestic situation. It was also reported her sister's vehicle was stolen in the last two weeks and it wasn't clear if this was the one they are looking for now.

    I feel so bad for Jennifer and her family. She has worked so hard to get where she is and the ugly reality is that crime happens to everyone. :( How awful for them now to have this child missing, too. I pray he is found safely very soon and the POS who would do this is caught.

    http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2008/10/double-homicide-on-south-side.htmlA Chicago police spokeswoman also said a 7-year-old boy was reported missing. Police identified him as Julian King (right), but they would not say whether he is a relative of the actress. He is 5-foot tall, weighs 135 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. An Amber Alert has been issued for the missing boy. The police said that they are searching for a William Balfour as a suspect in the double homicide. They said he is considered to be armed and dangerous, and may be driving a white 1994 Chevrolet Suburban with Illinois license plate No. X584859 or a teal/green Chrysler Concord four-door with a left front headlight hanging out that is scratched all along its left side. The Chrysler is displaying temporary tags of 332K823.While police identify Balfour as a suspect in the Amber Alert, he has not been charged
