Kelvin Joseph, a Dallas Cowboys backer, was shot dead last month by a passenger who was not a gunman, but his lawyer, Barry Sorrel, said.
"Kelvin Joseph did not shoot Cameron Ray," Sorrels said in a statement. "Mr Ray's death was tragic and Kelvin expressed his deepest condolences for the loss of his family. On the night of March 17, Kelvin did not find himself in a state of unarmed violence."
Cameron Ray, 20, was killed in a March 18 shooting. A Dallas police spokesman declined to confirm Joseph's involvement in the case, but detectives from The Dallas Morning News interviewed the 22-year-old on Friday.
According to a video released by the Dallas Police Department, an incident took place between two groups of friends, including Joseph and Ray. Later, Ray and his friends were walking to their car when an SUV passed by and gunfire erupted. At 2:01 a.m., police responded to a shooting on the Greenville Avenue 3600 block and found Ray. He was taken to a local hospital where he died.

According to many sources, The Cowboys encouraged Joseph to meet with the police about what he knew about the incident. on Friday, The Cowboys have issued a statement on the situation.
"The Dallas Cowboys noticed the tragedy in Dallas on March 18th. First of all, our hearts go to Mr. Ray's family and loved ones. The organization is aware that this may be related to Kelvin Joseph's case.
