Bloody clothing belonging to Kevin Ogletree, the older brother of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, strewn on Linden Blvd. in Queens on Saturday
The older brother of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was clinging to life Saturday, a day after he was shot in the head during a dispute in Queens, sources told the Daily News.
Calvin Ogletree, 25, was standing in front of his luxury car rental shop on Linden Blvd. near 200th St. in St. Albans when two men approached him about 3 p.m., police sources said.
Investigators believe the three men were arguing over money, when at least one of the two suspects pulled out a gun and fired — sending a bullet into Ogletree’s head, police sources said.
“I heard one or two pops,” said a man who works nearby. “I didn’t know if it was gunshots. Then I saw some excitement. I got a streak of fear. I saw a bunch of people running and screaming.”
Ogletree was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. The
suspects, who fled the scene on bicycles, are both still at large, cops said.
Neighbors said Ogletree opened his shop, Calli Exotic Car Rental, just last summer.
“He’s a nice guy who was always smiling,” said Jack Glasser, 30, who owns King’s Auto just above Ogletree’s business. “I feel bad for him.”
Ogletree’s younger brother, Kevin, signed with the Cowboys in 2009 undrafted after graduating from the University of Virginia.
Kevin Ogletree, 24 — who was named the Daily News player of the year in 2005 for his record-playing ball with Holy Cross High School in Flushing, Queens — made 15 receptions for 164 yards in the 2011 NFL season.
But Calvin never spoke of his brother’s pro football career.
“I didn’t know his brother played for the Cowboys,” said Glasser. “He never mentioned that.”
Relatives declined to speak to a reporter at the hospital, but friends posted their support on the siblings’ Facebook pages.
“Im so sorry about ur brother,” Danny Banner posted on Kevin Ogletree’s wall. “I’m praying for him and ur family.”
“Pray everyone please,” Kevin posted on his Twitter account soon after the horrific shooting
