Arrests for shooting from SUV Cowboy was driving in


DALLAS (AP) — Two men were arrested in a fatal shooting from a vehicle that a Dallas Cowboys player was in, Dallas police said Saturday.

Dallas cornerback Kelvin Joseph is not mentioned in a press release that Aries Jones, 28, and Tivione English, 21, were identified as the shooters and arrested.

Joseph’s attorney, Barry Sorrels, said Friday that Joseph was a passenger in the SUV from which the shots were fired on March 18, but was unarmed and did not fire the shot. victim, Cameron Ray.

Joseph “got into a situation that escalated without his knowledge or consent,” Sorrels said, and that he apologizes “for being in close proximity to this type of incident.”

Jones and English were jailed Saturday in Dallas. Jail records do not list attorneys who could speak on their behalf.

The Cowboys selected Joseph, the former LSU and Kentucky star, in the second round of the NFL Draft last year.

In a statement, Cowboys officials said they were aware of “the tragic incident” and in contact with Dallas police and the NFL office.

In a statement, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said, “The matter is under review of the league’s personal conduct policy.”
