SWAT Team Involved In Standoff Outside Home Of Former Notre Dame Football Assistant Coach
A SWAT team has responded to the Indiana suburb of Granger after shots were reportedly fired inside the home of Corwin Brown, a former assistant coach for Notre Dame and a former safety for the University of Michigan and in the NFL*.
According to the South Bend Tribune, police responded to a domestic abuse call just before 1PM. A reporter for South Bend's WSBT 22 said he heard additional shots fired after he arrived on the scene.
The story is still developing, and a police officer told the South Bend Tribune that the SWAT team is "preparing to enter the house."
Brown's wife and three children made it safely out of the house, and now WNDU is reporting that Brown is indeed alone inside. The police have reportedly ordered the power to the house to be shut down, as well.
Via Eric Hansen, Notre Dame beat writer for the Tribune: police are using a bullhorn to communicate with Brown, and trying to get him to call them. Then, a man "appearing to be Corwin Brown" -- but not confirmed to be -- "came out of the house briefly then turned around and went back in."
UPDATE: The standoff ended at 7:45PM on Friday. Brown was taken to a local hospital after a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but is in fair condition.
*Brown's full resume, via PFT:
Brown, 41, played for the Patriots from 1993 through 1996, the Jets from 1997 to 1998, and the Lions in 1999 and 2000. He worked as a coach at Virginia (2001 through 2003) and Notre Dame (2007 to 2009), and with the Jets (2004 to 2006) and Patriots (2010). The Patriots did not extend his employment beyond 2010.
