Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Shannon Brown was arrested last week after allegedly firing a gun at people after an open house mix up, according to TMZ.

Brown, 34, reportedly pulled a gun on two people who entered his home May 2. The people told police they were looking for houses, and saw a for sale sign in front of Brown’s house. They claim someone told them to come in the house when they reached the door.

While Brown confronted the two, he eventually allowed them to leave. As they were leaving, the two individuals claim Brown fired 5-6 shots at them. Police found a shell casing at the scene and arrested Brown for aggravated assault.

Brown was able to post bail two days later, according to TMZ.

A former first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Brown spent nine seasons in the NBA. He bounced around during his career, playing for eight different teams. Brown won two NBA championships as a member of the Lakers.
