Another day, another NFL player in trouble with the law.
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph is a person of interest in a murder investigation related to a drive-by shooting that took place outside of a bar in Dallas last month.
Joseph’s attorney Barry Sorrels said his client was a passenger inside the vehicle that fired into the group of men, however the NFL player did not shoot the gun.
According to WFAA, Kelvin Joseph’s name surfaced after Dallas PD released surveillance footage showing a brawl between two groups of men outside of a club on Greenville Avenue shortly before 2 am on March 18.
After the fight, a black SUV pulled up and a person inside the vehicle fired shots at the group of men.
20-year-old Cameron Ray was shot in the head and died.
Yahoo Sports reported:
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph is being sought as a “person of interest” in connection with a Dallas area homicide that occurred on March 18, sources have told Yahoo Sports.
The Dallas Police Department is seeking an interview with Joseph, after he appeared to be in surveillance footage near the scene of the shooting death of 20-year old Cameron Ray. Homicide investigators released multiple pieces of footage to Fox 4 News in Dallas earlier this week, asking viewers to identify any individuals they might recognize. The footage featured a group of men that appeared to include Joseph entering and standing inside a nightclub, as well as a fight that occurred with the same group outside the establishment. Shortly after that altercation, surveillance shows Ray and others walking to nearby cars, when a dark-colored SUV speeds by firing gunshots. Ray was struck and died later at a local hospital.
A source told Yahoo Sports the Cowboys became aware of Joseph being a person of interest in the investigation Thursday and have encouraged his cooperation with investigators. Cowboys security is also reviewing Joseph’s potential involvement in the altercation outside the nightclub and expect to be cooperating fully with investigators.
After the surveillance video was released by the Dallas Police Department, people recognized Kelvin Joseph’s gaudy necklace (screenshot below) with the letters “YKDV.”
