GRANGER, Ind. – Former NFL player and coach Corwin Brown was in a fair condition in a hospital Friday after after a seven-hour standoff with police at his Indiana home, the South Bend Tribune reported.
Brown suffered at least one gunshot wound during the incident, which police said was self-inflicted. Police said they never fired any shots at Brown.
A SWAT team was dispatched to the 41-year-old's home in Granger, just outside South Bend, after shots were heard inside the residence, according to WSBT-TV.
Police responded to what began as a domestic abuse call shortly before 1:00pm local time, according to The South Bend Tribune.
Brown's children and his wife, Melissa, made it out of the home safely, a neighbor told WSBT-TV.
A former coach of Brown's, Bob Chmiel, assisted police at the scene in their negotiations, WNDU-TV reported.
Chmiel told Brown, "Let me help you. Be a Michigan man today. We've had great times in the past, we'll have great times in the future. Let me help."
He served as the Patriots' defensive backs coach in 2010. He was a defensive backs coach for the Jets from 2004-2006.
Police told the South Bend Tribune that charges are likely to be filed against Brown, but they did not elaborate on what they would be.
