IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – Investigators with the Irving Police Department have located and arrested a second person believed to be involved in the murder of Ledajrick Rajae “L.D.” Cox, a Dallas teen gunned down hours after graduating from high school.

Cortney Ray Wright was arrested Wednesday evening. Police haven’t said what Wright is charged with or if more arrests are expected.

Hours after graduating from Carter High School, Cox and several of his friends stopped at a 7-Eleven store in Irving. It was there that Cox and his friends got into an argument with a group in another vehicle.

Irving police say they received a number of tips after releasing surveillance video from the convenience store. It was that information that lead them to both Wright and Robinson.

  1. I am so sad for the family of L D Cox. This young man had a prosperous life ahead of him. I am crying with his family. What a tragedy, travesty. He was excited about graduating and his fulfillment ahead of him. Family, Black Lives Matter is a political ploy. Lives matter. This sweet boy’s life matters. I am white, and I will think of him often. Don’t let this be turned into a BLM political debate. The people responsible have no respect for human life. These are the people we must snuff out.
