Authorities in Chicago say the 7-year-old nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Cook County spokesman Sean Howard tells The Associated Press that in Tuesday’s autopsy the county’s medical examiner ruled Julian King’s death a homicide.
Howard declined to say where the child suffered wounds or how long he had been dead, citing an ongoing Chicago police investigation.
Julian’s body was found Monday in a white SUV, three days after the bodies of Hudson’s mother and brother were discovered in their home on the city’s South Side.
An Amber Alert was issued for Julian on Friday.
