Three arrests have been made in connection with the shooting death of Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter Trinity. The high school sophomore was pronounced dead at the University of Kentucky hospital at around 5 a.m. on Sunday, roughly one hour after she was shot in the neck following an exchange of gunfire at a Kentucky restaurant. Witnesses said that the shots came from two parked cars in the lot of a Lexington restaurant called Cook Out. Both vehicles quickly sped off after the shooting. Investigators don't believe Gay was in either car at the time of the shooting and have said she was likely a bystander.
According to police, Dvonta Middlebrooks, 21, has been arrested and charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon following an investigation into Trinity's death. Police believe Middlebrooks shot and killed Trinity while exchanging gunfire with a father and his son. Chazerae Taylor, 38, and D'Markeo Taylor, 19, have also been arrested and charged with wanton endangerment.
Tyson Gay flew back to Lexington, his birthplace, on Sunday. "She didn't make it," he told Lexington TV station WLEX. "I'm so confused. She was just here last week for fall break. It's so crazy. I have no idea what happened."
Police are continuing to investigate the shooting.
