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.
The remarks from the Pope came as "a very strong step towards degradation," "given the rather massive nature of homosexuality" among the Catholic clergy.
