Cornerback Kelvin Joseph met with police in Dallas Friday to discuss what he knows about a drive-by shooting that resulted in the death of Cameron Ray on March 18.

His attorney said Joseph did not fire a weapon, but that he was in the car at the time of the shooting and Texas law could lead to charges for anyone in the vehicle. Two arrests were made in that shooting a day after Joseph met with police, but Joseph has not been charged or arrested and he was in attendance for the first day of the Cowboys offseason workouts on Monday.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was asked about Joseph’s status during a Tuesday appearance on 105.3 The Fan.

“The investigation is ongoing. We’re waiting to get all of the information,” Jones said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Joseph was a second-round pick last season and Jones said that potential charges or league discipline for him would not alter their best player available approach to this year’s draft.

  1. Information? His attorney already said he was present in a vehicle that someone fired shots from, and a man in the other vehicle was killed as a result. That makes him an accomplice, and in Texas that makes him eligible to be charged with the murder even though he may not have actually possessed, or fired, the gun used to commit the crime. What other information are you waiting for?

  2. For once it would be nice to hear “We are going to hold the player out until we get all the information” Especially when the alleged incident is murder…

  3. Yikes. If you were in the car then you are guilty of the crime. Watch the company you keep. Surely there was some red flags that the Cowboys ignored when drafting this guy. Not everyone wakes up and decides to ride along for a drive by shooting like it’s a Sunday stroll after church. I’m guessing there was plenty of evidence available painting this guy as a bad dude prior to this incident.
