Police, Vikings reps at Everson Griffen's home after he reported intruder, fired weapon

Minnesota Vikings representatives, team mental health professionals and local law enforcement were at the home of defensive end Everson Griffen on Wednesday after a disturbing Instagram post and 911 call.

Griffen reported an intruder in the early morning hours and law enforcement officers reported to the home, but said they didn't find anyone. Griffen remained in his home and refused to come out, they said.

The Vikings updated the situation late on Wednesday to say that Griffen "came out of his home without incident and is now getting the care that he needs.
