Elvis Presley's gun stolen from Memphis museum

Elvis Presley’s gun was stolen from Memphis museum during the fans to mark the 30th anniversary of the singer's death, authorities said.

The black, 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol was taken Tuesday from a display case in the Elvis After Dark museum, across the street from Graceland, Presley's mansion, police said.

A video camera caught a man removing the pistol from the display case around midnight.

The theft was discovered Friday when a visitor noticed that a glass panel on the case was unfastened and Graceland officials reviewed the video. Graceland operates the museum.

Presley died at Graceland on Aug. 16, 1977, and is buried in a small garden beside the house.
