Kelvin Joseph sought by police
Police want to speak with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph in connection to a fatal shooting in the Lower Greenville section of Dallas, Texas last month, per reports Thursday.
The victim, 20-year-old Cameron Ray, was fatally shot after a March 18 altercation culminated in a shootout with a group of individuals that appears to include Joseph. In video footage obtained by KDFW-TV in Dallas, one of the individuals can be seen wearing a necklace emblazoned with “YKDV.” Joseph, a second-round pick by the Cowboys last year, goes by the rap name “YKDV Bossman Fat.”
The video also shows shots ringing out from an SUV as Ray and a group of others walked toward their vehicle after the confrontation.
Dealing with the aftermath
The Dallas Cowboys declined to provide any further comments on the situation. However, according to a source familiar with the situation, the organization has encouraged Joseph to speak with the police and reveal what he knows about the events.
Dallas Police Department detective Tonya McDaniel told KDFW that Ray and three friends were visiting Dallas for the weekend and were not responsible for the altercation preceding the fatal shooting. Police are trying to identify the men in the video, including the man dawning the YKDV chain.
Joseph appeared in 10 games and was given two starts as a rookie last season. He registered 13 tackles and two pass deflections. Before that, he played one season at LSU and one at Kentucky. He was due to make $1,013,689 in base salary as part of a four-year, $7,781,162 rookie deal.
