Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph finally met with Dallas police Friday, almost a month after a 20-year-old man died in a drive-by shooting. Matt Howerton of WFAA reports that police investigators questioned Joseph for “a few hours.”

In video tweeted by Howerton of Joseph leaving his attorney’s office, where the interview took place, Joseph did not comment to reporters as he walked to a waiting car.

Cameron Ray died March 18 from gunshots fired from a black SUV following a fight earlier in the night outside a bar. Joseph’s attorney admitted Joseph was a passenger in the vehicle but was unarmed.

“He found himself in a situation that escalated without his knowledge or consent,” the attorney, Barry Sorrels, told the Dallas Morning News.

Joseph’s involvement in the fight became known when Dallas police recently released surveillance video to KDFW-TV. Joseph, whose rapper pseudonym is “YKDV Bossman Fat,” was wearing his signature necklace with a YKDV medallion. (YKDV stands for “You Know Da Vibe.”)

Texas’ law of parties could potentially lead to charges for anyone in the SUV at the time of the shooting, according to the DMN.

The Cowboys made Joseph a second-round choice in 2021, and he played 164 defensive snaps and 142 on special teams in 10 games with two starts. He totaled 16 tackles and two pass breakups.

  1. Are you freaking kidding me, how dumb do you really have to be to put yourself in such a potentially damning situation?

  2. Why does it always seem to be football players? Rarely do you hear athletes from other sports being involved in this kind of stuff.

  3. He’s probably working on a deal to name names if he gets let loose from this mess. You can bet his attorney is telling him to save yourself while you can

  4. So it took a month for Joseph to meet with the police.

    Put his butt in prison with a 30 year sentence, no parole. That’s what the guys in Brunswick GA got and one of them was in a different vehicle videoing the whole thing.

  5. If he did nothing wrong he should have called the police and reported the shooting that night.

  6. Sing Kelvin,… sing like a robin on a summer morning to police and you might get a reduced charge and sentencing.

  7. For those who don’t know, all Texas’s “law of parties” does is abolish any distinction between a “principle” and an “accessory” to a crime. To be either one in Texas, there must be evidence that someone actively participated in or promoted the criminal activity. Being present but “silent” during a crime is explicitly *not* a criminal offense. In Texas, it is a misdemeanor to have first-hand witness of a life-threatening action and not report it, so no matter what else Joseph is in line to face that – but, of course, a misdemeanor is very different than a felony.

  8. When I was in high school the sheriffs deputy doing our DARE classes told me “show me your friends, I’ll show you your future”. Smart guy looking back.

  9. Is a person who tolerates murder without reporting it a functioning member of society? I think not. You cant be a leader without a moral compass.
