At approximately 6:26 AM the Darien Police were dispatched to 1605 Darien Club Drive for a domestic situation and the husband, Paul G. Brown ( 51) had displayed a firearm.  While en-route units were advised that the husband had fired the weapon.  As our officers arrived on scene the wife and two children were able to flee the house to the safety of the arriving officers. 

Based on the circumstances the area was locked down and the FIAT SWAT Team (Felony Investigative Assistance Team) was activated.  Several attempts were made to make contact with Mr. Brown and after that was unsuccessful a robot was sent into the house. Mr. Brown was located inside the house with what appeared to be a fatal self- inflicted gunshot wound.
