Sources confirm to E! News that Jennifer Hudson's mother, 57-year-old Darnelle Donerson, was found dead Friday afternoon in a house on the South Side of Chicago listed in Darnelle's name.
Officer John Mirabelli of the Chicago Police Department tells E! that officers were called to the 7000 block of Yale Avenue in the neighborhood of Englewood, where just before 3 p.m. they discovered two unresponsive adults—one male, one female—who had apparently been shot to death.
The shooting is believed to be domestic, according to police. Various reports are claiming that the other victim was Hudson's older brother, Jason Hudson.
Our prayers go out to Jennifer Hudson and her family.
