Three charged after shooting that killed sprinter Gay's daughter


Lexington Police Department has confirmed that three people have been charged in connection with the shooting that claimed the life of American Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's daughter.

Trinity Gay, 15, was reportedly caught in the cross-fire as shots were exchanged between two vehicles outside of a restaurant in Lexington, Kentucky.

She was pronounced dead at UK Hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A 21-year-old man is charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, while a 38-year-old father and his 19-year-old son also face wanton endangerment charges.

The victim's father, whose 100 metre personal best is the joint second fastest of all time, told LEX18 on Sunday: "She didn't make it. I'm so confused. She was just here last week for fall break. 

"It's so crazy. I have no idea what happened."

USA Track and Field tweeted: "Sending our thoughts & prayers to @TysonLGay & his loved ones as they mourn the tragic & senseless loss of his daughter, Trinity."
