A seven-hour standoff with police at the home of former NFL DB and assistant coach Corwin Brown ended when he was taken from his home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

St. Joseph County Metro Homicide commander Tim Corbett told the Detroit Free Press on Friday evening that he did not know if the injuries were life-threatening.

The police reported to Brown's home after 1 p.m. on Friday, responding to a reported domestic dispute. Brown's wife and children left the house and tried to talk him out with cell phones and a bullhorn. Brown's wife had a bruise on her head but the children were not hurt.

Brown, who played eight seasons in the NFL with the Patriots, Jets and Lions, was hospitalized.

He was an assistant with the Patriots last season but was not retained. He was also Notre Dame's defensive coordinator from 2007-09.
