— -- A handgun has been found near the home of Amanda Blackburn, the pastor’s wife who was shot dead last week in Indiana.

The gun was recovered "several days ago," Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Lt. Richard Riddle said Tuesday.

The person who claimed to have found the weapon near the Blackburn home turned it in to a firehouse, he added.

Amanda Blackburn died Nov. 10 after someone broke into the home she shared with her husband, Pastor Davey Blackburn, and their young child, police said.

The gun has been submitted for testing at a crime lab to determine whether it is connected to the Blackburn killing, Riddle said.

In an interview Tuesday with ABC News' “Good Morning America,” Pastor Blackburn said, "Amanda didn't have an enemy in the world."
