Former Michigan State star Shannon Brown was arrested last week after allegedly firing a gun at two people who entered his Georgia home under the impression it was for sale.
According to TMZ Sports, two individuals were searching for available houses May 2 in Tyrone, Georgia, area when they noticed a “For Sale” sign in front of Brown’s home. They entered through an open gate and upon knocking at the door, the individuals told police they were told to enter.
That’s when Brown confronted them, and pulled a firearm.
The individuals told police that as they were leaving, Brown fired five or six shots at them. Police found one shell casing at the scene, and the investigation is ongoing.
Brown was arrested on aggravated assault, and released on bond May 4. He told police that he thought the individuals were trying to break into his home.
Tyrone police confirmed there was a “For Sale” sign in Brown’s yard.
Brown played three seasons for the Spartans, including a run to the 2005 Final Four, before declaring for the NBA. He was a first-round pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and spent nearly a decade in the league. He won a pair of championship rings with the Los Angeles Lakers.
