Corwin Brown Listed In Fair Condition After Standoff

((HT: WSBT-TV South Bend))

A SWAT standoff in the home of former Notre Dame football defensive coach Corwin Brown took up almost eight hours Friday afternoon and evening. He was loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the side when the standoff was over.

Police say he is currently in fair condition and do not know if the injuries are life-threatening.

The situation started out as a domestic abuse call shortly before 1PM. Police say they heard one gunshot from inside the home when they arrived. At that point in time, the SWAT team was activated.

Brown's wife and children made it out of the home. Police said Brown's wife, Melissa, had a bruise on her head.

Brown remained in the home. Police said they heard two more shots from the garage. They told neighbors to stay inside their homes and away from windows as they talked with Brown using cellphones and later bullhorns.

WSBT's Chad Damp is at the house and picks it up from there...
