Here’s a sad and tragic story we have to report. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay‘s 15-year-old daughter, Trinity Gay, was shot and killed early Sunday morning in Kentucky.
Unfortunately she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Police say Trinity was shot in the neck during a shootout between 2 cars in a Lexington restaurant parking lot around 4am. The police reports says he was not in either car, and was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead within an hour.
According to TMZ, Tyson is reportedly on his way to Kentucky to deal with the situation.
He told a local news station …
“She didn’t make it. She was just here last week for fall break … I have no idea what happened.”
Trinity Gay was a sprinter at Lafayette High in Lexington and finished fourth in the 100 meters and fifth in the 200 meters at the state Class 3A high school track meet in May, records show. She also ran on a 4×200 relay team that finished fourth. Her father also ran at Lafayette and still holds the state record in the 100 set in 2001.
