Former Patriot Corwin Brown Hospitalized After Standoff

GRANGER, Ind. (CBS/AP) — Police say former NFL player Corwin Brown has been taken to a hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a nearly seven-hour standoff at his Indiana home.

Brown was Notre Dame’s defensive coordinator from 2007 to 2009. The 41-year-old coached defensive backs with the New England Patriots last season, but was not retained.

St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett said Friday night he did not know whether Brown’s injuries were life-threatening.

Police say they heard gunshots inside the home when they arrived about 1 p.m. in response to a reported domestic dispute. Brown’s wife and children exited the house sometime later and police say they began trying to talk him out using cellphones and a bullhorn.

He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 4th round of the 1993 NFL Draft. Brown, a safety, played four seasons with the Patriots, two with the New York Jets and two with the Detroit Lions.
