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.

Dallas police detective Tonya McDaniel appeared in the Fox 4 report and said the group inside the nightclub had been identified as the same group that was involved in the altercation outside.

“They are the same people who were involved in that fight,” McDaniel said.

After playing collegiately at LSU and Kentucky, Joseph was a second-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2021 NFL draft. He is also known as “YKDV Bossman Fat” as a hip-hop artist.
