Griffen reportedly called the authorities a little after 3 a.m., saying that someone was in his home and that he needed help from the police, the Minnetrista Public Safety Department said in a statement.

Griffen also told the dispatcher that he had fired a weapon, but nobody was injured. Police added that they were not able to find any intruders.

This comes after a disturbing Instagram post that Griffen made overnight, where he was filming himself with a gun, making statements that someone was after him. Due to the nature of the post, it has not been added to this story.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer shared in a press conference that the team is focused on Griffen’s safety at this point.
