Brim, 39, was shot Tuesday night and pronounced dead at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. No charges have been filed, and the case remains under investigation.
Brim had been involved in an argument with Gary Miles, police spokeswoman Cynthia Price said. Police found Brim with a fatal gunshot wound in the driveway of Miles' brother. The relationship between each man and the unidentified woman was unclear.
Miles, 42, also was shot and was in stable condition Friday at VCU Medical Center, a family member in Miles' hospital room said.
Brim was drafted in the fourth round out of Virginia Union by the Cardinals in 1988. He went on to play for Detroit, Minnesota, the New York Jets and Cincinnati. His career ended in 1995 when he was limited to one game with the Bengals because of an injury.
Brim, who was born in Danville, moved to the Richmond area after the NFL to start several businesses, including nightclubs, friends said.
He is survived by a wife and four children.
