Dalvin Cook says he’s trying to reach out to his teammate after seeing the disturbing Everson Griffen video on Wednesday morning.
A disturbing video posted to the Instagram account of Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen on Wednesday morning has prompted an ongoing police situation outside of his home.
In the video Griffen is seen sitting at his home in the dark with a handgun, describing to those watching that he has a license to carry it and that he’s preparing to defend himself against what he claims is a threat to his life.
He notes that he bought ammunition for the gun and that it was acquired with the help of Vikings running back Dalvin Cook.
Local authorities released a report late Wednesday morning detailing that Griffen had called police around 3 a.m. CT saying that he was fearing for his life. Griffen told dispatchers that he had fired his weapon but that no one was injured.
According to police, Griffen is refusing to leave his home although they believe no one else is in immediate danger.
