Vikings Everson Griffen Says People Are Trying to Kill Him While Putting Gun to His Head

The Vikings released a statement saying security personnel was on the scene at Everson Griffen’s house, but sadly the situation hasn’t been resolved.

Griffen posted some disturbing social media posts with a gun saying people were trying to kill him.

Griffen has had mental health issues in the past.

Wednesday, police are at the home of Minnesota Vikings defensive end, Everson Griffen.

Screenshots of text conversations that included the phrases “I need help” and “people are trying to kill me” as well as a video depicting Griffen holding a gun were posted to Griffen’s social media early Wednesday morning.

The Minnesota Vikings released the following statement Wednesday:

Vikings representatives and the team’s mental health professionals have been on-site at Everson Griffen’s home since early this morning and are cooperating with law enforcement. Our only concern at this time is the safety and well-being of Everson and his family. We will have further comment at the appropriate time.

Concerns have previously surfaced regarding Griffen’s mental health.

Police reports from September 2018 indicated Griffen’s behavior at a Vikings practice—described by a team official as “explosive, screaming and yelling”—was disruptive to the point he was ordered to get a mental health evaluation before being allowed to rejoin the team.

A Minneapolis police incident report also filed in September 2018—in which Griffen’s name was redacted—stated that Griffen had allegedly threatened to shoot members of the Hotel Ivy staff unless he was allowed into his room. A source confirmed to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that Griffen was the person identified in the report. No gun was ever found, according to the report, and Griffen was allowed by police to leave the hotel on his own accord.

Hopefully, Griffen gets the help he needs because mental health is a very serious issue, especially in the black community.
