Dallas police will reportedly interview Dallas Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph following the murder of 20-year-old Cameron Ray. Legal authorities have not taken anyone into custody for a deadly shooting in the early hours of March 18 outside a bar in Dallas’ Lower Greenville Avenue area.
The Dallas Police Department is looking to interview the cornerback after surveillance footage appeared to show him in proximity to the scene of the shooting that led to Ray's death.
Homicide detectives made public several pieces of footage via Fox 4 News in Dallas, asking viewers to single out anyone they might know.
The footage featured a gathering of males, including one person who appeared to be Joseph, going inside and standing in a nightclub. The footage also shows a fight outside the nightclub that involved the same group and Ray and his friends.
Soon after the fight, surveillance showed Ray and others walking to cars nearby when a dark-colored SUV drove by, firing gunshots. Ray was hit and succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital soon after.
The Cowboys became informed of the 21-year-old being a person of interest in the investigation earlier in the week and have rallied their efforts to work with detectives. The team’s security is also assessing his possible participation in the fight outside the nightclub and is looking forward to being fully cooperative with the authorities.
Dallas Police Detective Tonya McDaniel said the group inside the nightclub had been identified as the same group that was involved in the altercation outside. McDaniel said:
“They are the same people who were involved in that fight.”
