Everson Griffen shared a troubling video stating that someone was out to kill him. In the video Griffen claimed his teammate Dalvin Cook helped him purchase a handgun to defend himself.

Dalvin Cook denies helping Griffen buy a gun and doesn’t know why his name was mentioned in the video posted on Instagram. On Wednesday morning, Griffen uploaded a video of himself holding a gun, claiming people were trying to kill him. In the video, Griffen says Cook helped him purchase the gun.

According to police, Griffen even fired the gun believing there was an intruder in the house. The police didn’t find any evidence of an intruder. Afterwards, they had trouble getting Griffen to come out of his residence.

The Minnesota Public Safety Department said in a news release that Griffen called 911 after 3 a.m. Wednesday from his residence. He urged assistance from authorities stating that someone broke into his home to kill him. Griffen also confessed to the 911 dispatcher that he fired a gun but didn’t cause any casualties.


“I’m in my house. N—– trying to pop me. I’ve still got clips left. This is my gun, .45 Wilson Combat, registered to me. I bought all my bullets around town. Dalvin Cook helped me purchase this gun. It all belongs to me, and they are registered to me. I know exactly where I bought them. I’ve got the card I have them on. I have everything.”

Law enforcement and Vikings team psychologists have been in communication with Griffen since approximately 7 a.m. after the incident. Latest update says that the Police were finally able to get Griffen to come out of his home and the situation is currently being taken care of.
