Dallas police reportedly want to talk to a Cowboys’ player about a murder. According to the Dallas Morning News, police want to talk to Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph in connection with that shooting.
Video has since been released showing Joseph and others fighting with Cameron Ray and his friends not too long before a Black SUV was seen shooting at them and killing Ray. Police said he had come to Dallas with three friends for a fun birthday weekend.
One of the men fighting with Ray and his friends was wearing a necklace with the letters YKDV. That’s part of Joseph’s nickname as a rapper.
Joseph’s attorney has since released a statement:
“Kelvin Joseph did not shoot Cameron Ray,” Barry Sorrels, Joseph’s attorney, said. “Mr. Ray’s death is a tragedy, and Kelvin extends his deepest condolences for the family’s loss. On the night of March 17, Kelvin was unarmed and was not looking for violence. He found himself in a situation that escalated without his knowledge or consent.
“Along with condolences to the Ray family, Kelvin apologizes to the Dallas community for being anywhere near this type of incident. The investigation is ongoing, and we intend to respect the process.”
No one has been arrested for a deadly shooting that happened in the early hours of March 18 outside a bar on Dallas’ Lower Greenville Avenue.
The Cowboys drafted Joseph, who played at LSU and Kentucky, in the second round last year. During his rookie season with Dallas, he played mostly on special teams but was a starter later in the year.
