UPDATED (9:19 p.m. ET): According to the Chicago Tribune, Corwin Brown has been hospitalized after suffering a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his side.

During the standoff, Brown requested several people to whom he could speak, including a former Michigan coach. He was heard to be saying over the bullhorn, "I need you to be a Michigan man."

For now, Brown's condition is unknown.

UPDATED (8:23 p.m. ET): The Tribune writes the standoff is over. An ambulance has left the scene with its lights and siren running.


The home of Corwin Brown, a former NFL safety who also spent some time coaching for the Patriots and the Jets, has been surrounded by a SWAT team and other police after shots were fired inside his Granger, Ind., house.

This, according to the Chicago Tribune, WSBT-TV and the South Bend Tribune (Brown is also a former Notre Dame defensive coach).

Officials said the police were called about 1 p.m. Friday afternoon after a domestic abuse call was made. Neighbors have said that Brown’s wife and children have evacuated the house, but apparently Brown is still inside and allegedly firing gunshots.

Police also have said they’ve talked on the phone with Brown late this afternoon. They’ve also said over a bullhorn: “Please let us know that you are OK," and "Nobody here wants to hurt you."

Brown played for the Patriots, Jets and Lions from 1993-2000. In his career, he recorded three interceptions in 120 games played.
