Dallas Cowboy Sought For Questioning In Fatal Shooting, Police Release Videos Of Incident

Dallas, TX – Police want to talk to Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph in connection with a fatal shooting after a fight last month that was captured on surveillance video (video below).

Footage from city and private security cameras showed the incident occurred on a street corner in the Lower Greenville section of Dallas on March 18 after a group of people left a nearby nightclub, KDFW reported.

“He was walking with some friends. They encountered a disturbance they did not start right here at this intersection,” Dallas Police Homicide Detective Tanya McDaniel to KDFW.

The video showed several men walking past another group of men that included 20-year-old Cameron Ray.

The men stopped and one of them turned back and said something.

Seconds later, they attacked the other group of men, the video showed.

When the fight was over, the groups split up and went their separate ways, KDFW reported.

Surveillance cameras in a nearby parking lot captured the moment that a black SUV drove by and opened fire from the rear window at Ray and his friends.

Investigators believe the SUV was occupied by the same men the group had just fought with, KDFW reported.

Ray was struck by a bullet in the drive-by.

He was transported to a nearby hospital where he died, CBS Sports reported.

Det. McDaniel said Ray and his friends were visiting Dallas from Athens for the weekend to celebrate and birthday and hadn’t done anything wrong, KDFW reported.

Police released the surveillance videos of the fight and the shooting on April 13.

Det. McDaniel asked the public to take a close look at the clothes the suspects in the videos were wearing, KDFW reported.

In the videos released by police, one of the men is wearing a necklace with the letters “YKDV.”

Joseph’s rapper nickname “YKDV Bossman Fat” as a rapper, according to KDFW.

The YKDV stands for “You Know Da Vibe”.

One April 15, Dallas police announced they wanted to talk to the Cowboys cornerback in connection with the shooting, KDFW reported.

Jason Cohen, an attorney for the Dallas Cowboys, said he encouraged Joseph to go do an interview with the Dallas Police Department about the fatal shooting, according to CBS Sports.

It was believed that Joseph planned to voluntarily go speak with police but there was no word on when that would happen.

Joseph played in 10 games for the Cowboys in 2021 and started in two games.

He had 16 tackles and recovered one fumble.

Joseph played college football at LSU in 2018 and then transferred to Kentucky in 2020, ESPN reported.

He was a second round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2021.

Joseph earned $3.7 million in salary his first year playing professional football in the National Football League (NFL).
